Lady Cougars:

The Logan County Girls’ Soccer team, as the top-seed in a three-team district, had only to watch (and rest) on Monday, October, as the District 13 Tournament got underway at LCHS field.

In the opening game of the tournament on Monday night, Todd County Central quickly dispatched the Franklin-Simpson Lady Wildcats 8-1.

The Lady Rebels victory set up a District Championship match that would be Deja-vu all over again. For the fourth year in a row the Lady Cougars would play the Lady Rebels on Thursday night for the title.

And for the fourth time in a row, the Lady Cougars would defeat the Lady Rebels. Fans in attendance watched as the Lady Cougars built and held a 3-0 lead. As the Lady Rebels continued to hustle and make attempts at the goal, the Lady Cougars continued to rise to the challenge and turn the opponent away. The final score of 3-0 would make the Lady Cougars District 13 Champs for the fourth year in a row.

Both teams advance to play in the Region four tournament in Glasgow this week.

Cougars:

In Thursday’s nightcap, the Logan County Boys’ Soccer team fell to mighty Franklin-Simpson 1-6 in the District 13 Championship game.

The Cougars advance the Championship game after an opening night victory over Todd County Central 5-3 on Tuesday night. The Wildcats advanced after a 12-0 victory over Russellville on Tuesday.

In the Championship game, the Cougars faced the Wildcats in a very fast-paced and physical game.

After falling behind early, the Cougars could not muster a rally to catch or hold the Wildcats in check. Wildcat Caleb Wilson scored all six of his teams goals with assists from five different teammates.

Both of these teams advance to the Region four tournament to be played in Franklin this week.

There is a possibility of a re-match of the District 13 Championship game; but Logan County will first have to get past South Warren and Glasgow, while Franklin-Simpson would need wins over Barren County and defending State Champion Bowling Green for that rematch to happen.
