H.S. SOCCER: Southern pulls away from Lady Patriots, 6-0

BEREA —  Madison Southern (7-10-2) blanked Model Laboratory 6-0 in the nightcap of the first round of the girls 44th District Tournament Monday.

The win sets up a rematch of last year’s championship game between Southern and Central, which the Lady Indians won in a shootout.

The Lady Eagles got two goals each by Karrigan Moberly and Mikki Clark and a goal each from Rachel Ramey and Chesney Sipple.

The Lady Patriots went toe-to-toe with the heavily favored Lady Eagles in the first half and played them to a draw until Moberly snuck a shot past Model goalkeeper Hayley Hunt with only 54 seconds remaining in the first half.

Sipple made it 2-0 midway through the second half then Moberly struck again at the 17-minute mark to make it 3-0.

Southern added three late goals in the final three minutes — one by Ramey and two by Clark to round out the scoring.

Southern coach Katy Cress said her team finally settled down and played its game in the second half.

“We were a little too patient for my taste. But once we settled down and relaxed a little bit in the second half everything fell into place like it should,” Cress said. “At halftime we talked about going more toward the middle where they were leaving gaps in the field and we finally figured it out going inside and outside both and we made it work.”

When the two teams played earlier in the year, Southern won 5-0, but the game was not nearly as competitive as Monday’s contest.

Model coach Michael Bailey said he was proud of the way his team came out and executed Monday.

“I am very pleased. They are a better team than us. We knew coming in that we were the underdog and it was going to take a really special effort and we put together a game plan and it worked as long as it could. I’m proud of our effort out there,” Bailey said. “We are eventually going to have to do something offensively if we are going to move to another level. We’ve got to somehow produce some goals.”

Central and Madison Southern will take the field Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Madison Southern.
