    CRESTWOOD – A stingy defense and the finishing abilities of senior forward Christian Lister put South Oldham in the district driver’s seat Tuesday.

    Lister scored three second-half goals and the Dragon defense didn’t allow Oldham County to put a shot on goal until the final minute. That combination added up to a 3-0 South win on a chilly night at Dragon Stadium.
