Wednesday, October 14, 2009
Forrest's Taylour (2) hopes the Lady Rockets can avenge an earlier season 4-2 loss to the MCHS Tigerettes when the two teams meet in Lewisburg on Saturday afternoon at 3pm in the first round of the District 11A/AA Tournament.

The regular season fourth place Marshall County Tigerettes (6-4, 4-3) will host fifth place Forrest (4-5, 3-4) Thursday in the first round of District 11A-AA soccer tournament.

MCHS beat the Lady Rockets 4-2 in a Sept. 1 match-up in Chapel Hill, breaking a seven-year losing steak.

The Cornersville Lady Bulldogs will have a daunting task in the first round when they have to travel to Williamson County to take on the first place powerhouse Page Lady Patriots.

Page is 15-1 overall and finished with an unblemished district record at 7-0. The Lady Pats outscored their district opponents in the regular season 63-1 with the only goal scored by Forrest in an 8-1 victory on Oct. 1 at Page.

MTCS (9-2-1, 6-1) finished the regular season in second place and will host Huntland.

The Cascade Lady Champions (5-5, 5-2) took third place in the regular campaign and will host the Community Viqueens in Thursday's opener.
