For the second straight year, the Logan County High School girls soccer team has won the District 13 championship.
The Lady Cougars received a bye into the tournament finals after posting the best district record in the regular season and faced off against Todd County Central on Thursday night at Franklin-Simpson High School, the host for this year’s district tournament.
Logan County battled the Lady Rebels to a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation, and the Lady Cougars got the best of Todd County Central in penalty kicks to take the district title.
It was the second straight year LCHS beat Todd Central on penalty kicks in the district finals. Last year’s championship game also came down to PKs with Logan County winning.
With the victory, Logan County advanced to the Fourth Region Tournament, which is being hosted by Bowling Green High School this year.
The Lady Cougars will take on the host Lady Purples tonight at 5:30 p.m. in the tournament semifinals.
Last year Logan County also played BGHS in the regional semifinals, losing 6-0.
The Logan County boys’ soccer team saw its season come to an end last week in the district tournament. The Cougars faced Todd Central in the first round of the tournament on Tuesday and lost 3-0.
The two teams had met twice in the regular season and split those matchups, with each team winning on their home field.
But the Rebels came out on top on the neutral field.
Logan County finished the season with an 8-7-1 record and had won four if its final five matches before the district tournament.
