Madison Central and Madison Southern will look to end that drought this week in Berea.

Girls Soccer

Madison Southern and Madison Central staged an epic battle in last week’s 44th District Tournament championship game.

Neither team scored through regulation and two overtimes. Central prevailed 4-3 in the shootout, giving the school’s its first district title since 2007.

The Lady Indians and Lady Eagles both have 17 wins, the second-most in the 11th Region.

Still, no Madison County team has won a match at the regional since 2006.

The Patriots are back and looking to once again make a deep run.
