BUCKNER -- Eastern started fast Friday night at Bell Field, scoring on three consecutive drives of 80 or more yards to take an early 21-7 lead.
A four-yard run by Caleb Allen pulled Oldham (2-6, 0-2 Class 6A, District 5) to within 21-14 midway through the second, and Sean Nuernberger followed with a season-best 48-yard field goal after Eastern fumbled the ensuing kickoff to make it 21-17.
Eastern (3-4, 1-1) scored on seven of its first nine possessions.
TAYLORSVILLE – Cy Tucker said the difference between his South Oldham team’s first and second halves Monday night was a matter of an attitude adjustment.
“I guess they decided they weren’t going to be the team that loses to Spencer County,” the Lady Dragons’ coach said.
And after trailing Spencer 1-0 at halftime, Stephanie Rowland scored three goals the first 10 minutes of the second half, sending South to a 3-1 win in the first round of the Region 8 girls tournament.
