This year's Tennessee-Georgia girls' soccer all-star match got out of hand, and it happened quickly.

Tennessee scored three goals in the first 17 minutes Thursday afternoon and cruised to a 6-0 victory against Georgia at Finley Stadium. The match was called in the 60th minute after rain.

East Hamilton's Camryn Harris scored two goals and was named the Tennessee player of the game. Cinthya Coronel from Northwest Whitfield was given the Georgia honor.

In addition to the goals by Harris, home schooler Paige Simons, McMinn County's Makena Giles and Morgan Hutchinson, and Walker Valley's Jade Mayo scored. Walker Valley's Mya Patel had a pair of assists, while Giles, Mayo and Chattanooga Christian's Kyra Duble and Giles each had an assist.

Tennessee improved its overall record in the series to 9-2-1.
