H.S. GIRLS SOCCER: Central, Southern set to meet for district title after easy victories

RICHMOND — Madison Southern and Madison Central both advanced to the finals of the 44th District Tournament with easy wins Monday at Madison Central High School.

The Lady Eagles topped Berea, 10-0, while the Lady Indians defeated Model, 9-0.

Central and Southern will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday at Madison Central in the title game.

Central uses experience, potent offense to advance past Model

On a cold October evening, the Lady Indians (16-2-1) used their experience and explosive offense to defeat Model, 9-0.

Central got two goals from junior Maryssa Stewart, who leads the team with 18 goals this season. Adrain Hall and Chandler Whitaker also had two goals for the Lady Indians. LeeAnne Ogle, Cassidy Lim and Bailey Harden also scored.

“We knew tonight was all about getting prepared, and focused for Thursday night,” Central coach Chris Dunham said.

Model, which had a disappointing season, played well in the first half before becoming fatigued and succumbing to the Lady Indians’ potent offense.

Head Coach Bill Kirk talked after the game about the work his team put in all season.

“We are a lot better now than we were 16 games ago and that’s the important thing,” he said. “We just got tired in the second half and that was the problem tonight.”

Kirk also commented on his three seniors, Miriam Cahill, Haley Corn and Ashlee Thornsberry.

“They put a lot of work in and helped bring a lot of the younger players into the program. What I said to them after the game was that even though their senior year wasn’t what they had hoped for it wasn’t a disappointing season. I just told them thank you for all their hard work.”

Dunham also liked what he saw from his youngsters, who scored six of the team’s nine goals.

“I pulled up some girls from JV and they played well and it helps not only with the team’s confidence but with their confidence level heading into next year,” Dunham said.

With the win the Lady Indians automatically advance to the 11th Region Tournament next week
