    GOSHEN – Nearly three weeks ago, with the regular season district title on the line, North Oldham went into Dragon Stadium, out-played South Oldham and left with an upset victory.

    That 1-0 home loss on Sept. 29 served as a wakeup call for the Lady Dragons, according to senior L.J. Wrightington.

    “It’s like a mind-check to realize that you’re not always going to win everything,” Wrightington said. “You’re not just going to have everything handed to you.”
