After a District 11A/AA Tournament play-in game 4-2 win over inter-county Cornersville, the Marshall County Tigerettes earned the unenviable task of a trip to unbeaten Page on Saturday for the quarterfinals.

Marshall County came out inspired on defense, holding the Lady Patriots scoreless until the 37:25 mark of the first half when Kelsy Wilkes turned in the box and drilled a laser past MCHS keeper Atlanta Ferguson.

From there, the floodgates opened up wide as Wilkes added three more first half goals and another goal in the second half.

Madison Stremler also scored in the second half for Page in the 6-0 victory.

The Tigerettes managed just one shot on goal by Peyton Gevedon in the first half and just three shots on goal in the second half by Laura Spence, Devin Jouett, and Sophie Raffo, respectfully.

The Tigerettes finished the 2011 campaign with a 2-6-2 record, while Page (11-4-1, 8-0) takes on MTCS (4-5-2, 3-3-2) in the semifinals in Franklin on Tuesday.

The Lady Cougars blanked Summit (4-7-1, 4-3-1) in the quarterfinals.

On the other side of the bracket, a Bedford County duel between Community (12-2-1, 6-2) and Cascade (8-8, 6-2) will determine who meets the Page/MTCS winner for the district title on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. in Rudderville.

Community bested Huntland 6-1 in round one, while Cascade took out Forrest 2-0.
