South advances to final with win

-A A +A

It didn’t take long for sophomore forward Stephanie Rowland and the South Oldham Lady Dragons to take the lead Monday night as the first goal was scored 13 seconds into the game. They never looked back from there, cruising to a relatively easy 5-0 win. 

In the biggest game of the year so far for each team, only one side entered ready to play — bumps, bruises and injuries took their toll on the Mustangs. 

With several key players sidelined with serious injuries, North Oldham failed to find a rhythm for much of the game and was forced to play catchup throughout.

It didn’t help matters that Rowland was a force unto her own, scoring four of five goals for South and being involved in almost every second of the game. 

South took control early with a 4-0 halftime lead and did not let the Mustangs possess much of the ball until late into the second period.

As a result of their win, the Lady Dragons returned to Dragon Stadium at 6 p.m. Wednesday for a showdown with Oldham County in the 29th district final. 

The district final occurred after press time, however, coverage is available online at oldhamera.com.
