The Oak Ridge girls defeated Farragut in soccer on Tuesday for the first time since 2008.
The two teams played Tuesday evening at the Pro2Serve Soccer Complex at Oak Ridge High School. The Lady Wildcats (2-0) won 5-2.
The last time the Oak Ridge girls beat Farragut was in a 3-0 regional semifinal win in 2008. Since then, they’ve had two ties (in 2009 and 2010), and every other game has ended in a loss, according to the coaching staff.
Oak Ridge senior Kate Hausladen scored two goals for the Lady Wildcats on Tuesday, one in the third minute of the game and the other in the 52nd minute.That last score from Oak Ridge came as Hausladen got behind the defense on a breakaway down the left side of the field and angled a shot across the front of the goal that bounced in off the right post.
Hausladen’s two-goal performance against the Lady Admirals on Tuesday followed a hat trick (three goals) against Knoxville Catholic at home on Thursday, August 16. Oak Ridge won that first regular-season game 4-2.
The Lady Wildcats play Christ Presbyterian Academy of Nashville at home on Saturday. The junior varsity game starts at 4 p.m., and the varsity game begins at 6 p.m.
