If there was any doubt who the top team in the 29th district was, the North Oldham Lady Mustangs dispelled it Tuesday night, dispatching rival South Oldham in dominant fashion 3-1 behind strong play from freshman Casey Foote and seniors Madison Tinder and Amanda Marques.
“This was huge,” coach Brian Jones said. “Our defense stepped it up and that’s kind of been our hindrance all year. We’ve worked on it and worked on it and worked on it and it finally, finally looked really good. We also had some offensive players that showed up though.”
In a first game that saw lead changes, North had the last laugh, squashing a late run by the Lady Dragons to win 25-23.
That bled over into the second game as North put it out of reach early with a 7-2 start that South never recovered from.
The Lady Dragons regained some momentum in the third, gaining an early lead and holding off a late run by NOHS, but fell in the fourth to surrender the match.
North Oldham now moves to 2-0 in district play with one game remaining against Oldham County scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m.
South has finished their district slate with a record of 2-1. From here, they’ll play the waiting game to find out where they stand in the district picture.
