The Madison Southern girls soccer team remained undefeated, picking up a 3-0 win Tuesday night at North Laurel.
Southern (10-0) and North Laurel (4-8-1) were scoreless at halftime.
The Lady Eagles put the game away in the second half with two goals by Dakota Gadd and one by Rachel Ramey.
Southern held North Laurel without a shot on goal.
“We looked flat,” Southern coach Katy Cress said. “We perked up in the second half. We played better in the second half. Their keeper had some really good saves, but we should have been able to finish more, so I was a little disappointed in that.”
Southern battles district rival Madison Central at 4 p.m. Saturday in Berea.
The Lady Eagles are 1-0 in the 44th District. Central (9-2-1) is 2-0 against district opponents.
Eagles 7, Somerset 2
Madison Southern extended its winning streak to seven games, beating Somerset 7-2 Tuesday night in the Berea Cup.
Southern’s scoreless streak of six straight games came to an end, but the Eagles had more than enough offense to get the victory.
“We played OK,” said Southern coach James Ray. “I thought in the first half we played better than in the second half. (Somerset) came out a little bit more fired up in the second half.”
Alex Sipple, Salvadar Quintana, Lucas Reynolds and Tyler Gipson all had goals for the Eagles.
Southern returns to action at 6 p.m. Thursday night in the tournament, facing No. 10 Western Hills (11-0-1) at Madison Southern.
The Eagles are now 8-3.
“I got a chance to watch them play and they’re a really good team,” Ray said of Western Hills. “It will be a good test for us to see where we are.”
Fans going to the game might want to arrive early, because the game starts at the same time as the school’s Homecoming parade.
