Central soccer team earns region berth

Central Magnet shut out Lincoln County 7-0 Tuesday to advance to the district finals, and with it another berth in the regional tournament.

In the regular season meeting between the two teams, Julia Ann Hamilton had four assists in a 5-0 Central Magnet win. This time Hamilton had a goal and an assist in the 7-0 win over Lincoln County. Alex Woods, Jillian Londre and Reilly Gusman also scored in the first half as the Tigers built a 4-0 lead.

"I thought we played pretty well and played together," Hamilton said. "We are looking to get through the regionals then the sectional and make another state tournament in Chattanooga."

In the second half, Brooke Hamilton and Claudia Mitchell added goals, and then off of a corner kick by Maddie Degnan went off the Falcon goalkeeper into the net to conclude the scoring.

"We played very well," Central coach Ray Bennett said. "It is the first time we have played on the turf and it was fast and I liked it."
