Oak Ridge beat Central 1-0 in a girls’ soccer district semifinal game on Tuesday and will play at Powell for the district championship on Friday.
The Lady Wildcats (10-6-1, 3-1 District 3-AAA) outshot the Lady Bobcats 38-5 at Oak Ridge High School in the district tournament semifinal game on Tuesday.
The shots-to-goal ratio should be closer to 10:1 or better, Oak Ridge Coach Jeff Trombly said.
“We’ve got to finish a lot better than that,” he said. “We had plenty of chances. We made it too close.”
Central came into the game undefeated, with a 16-0 overall record and a 6-0 district record. But the Lady Bobcats hadn’t played the top two seeds in the tournament, Powell and Oak Ridge. (Other district teams that did not play Powell or Oak Ridge and instead took 3-0 forfeits were Campbell County, Clinton, and Gibbs.)
Trombly said Oak Ridge needs a crowd to travel to Powell on Friday. [Read more…]
