The Lady Elks soccer team welcomed the Xenia Buccaneers to Alumni Stadium last night for a second round Sectional tournament game. Both teams were looking for a win which would send them to the District Semifinals next Monday night at Miamisburg High School.
The Elks, the #2 seed overall, wasted little time in making a statement, racing to a 7-0 halftime lead. First half goals were scored by Cara Crompton, Jenna Hallbeck and Emma Stanley with two each from Izzy Laidly and Chloe Spitler. Nicole Gardner added a second half goal and the defense shut out the Buccaneers the rest of the way to post an 8-0 victory.
Now 13-3-1 on the year, the Elks advance to the District Semifinals on Monday night where they will face the Sidney Yellow Jackets at 7:00 PM at Miamisburg High School.
