Last week, the South Oldham girls soccer team opened their season with two of the best teams in the state. Simon Kenton and Lexington Catholic. The Lady Dragons fell to Simon Kenton 2-0, but tied Lexington Catholic, a team ranked second in Kentucky by the Maher preseason rankings, 2-2 after leading for a majority of the game.
With a steady downpour for most of the first half, Friday didn’t exactly have ideal conditions for junior quarterback Drew Zaubi to throw the ball, so South Oldham relied on its rushing attack to lead the team to a 31-14 win over Anderson County, the same Anderson County that South Oldham had lost to nine of its previous 10 tries.
