Lady Wolverines advance to championship game

By SUSAN RIDDELL State Journal Sports Writer Published:

No goals were scored in the regular season meeting between the Western Hills and Scott County girls soccer teams, but that wasn't the case Wednesday night when the two teams met again in the 27th District tournament at Sower Soccer Field.

It was the Lady Wolverines who tallied two goals this time, earning the 2-0 shutout to advance to Saturday's championship game versus Woodford County.

Both WHHS and the Lady Jackets will advance to the regional tournament next week.

Regardless of which teams comes out on top Saturday, Western Hills can enjoy this win, which allowed the team will move on to the regional tournament for the second year in a row.

To do that, the Lady Wolverines had to come out with more intensity than they did in the regular season meeting with the Lady Cardinals.

"We played a lot better this time," WHHS assistant coach Matt Waldner said. "We were more aggressive and we were ready in the first half."

"We had more intensity," Western Hills sophomore Alicia McCarty added. "They played us rough so we came back and played rough with them."
