Lady Dragons Advance With Quarterfinal Shutout

The Carroll Lady Dragons are returning to Midland for the Class 5A Region I semifinals after an impressive victory Tuesday at Dragon Stadium.

The Lady Dragons blanked District 4-5A mate Keller Timber Creek 4-0 in a 5A Region I quarterfinal. It marked the third victory for the Lady Dragons against Timber Creek this season. Carroll jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first half, which included two goals by senior midfielder Meghan Murphy. Freshman forward Grace Cory added the other first-half goal. In the second half, sophomore midfielder Nicole Sloan scored on an assist from Sophie Groff.

Carroll will face Hebron at noon Friday in the Region I Tournament at Midland’s Grande Communcations Stadium. If the Lady Dragons win, they will play at noon Saturday for a berth to the Class 5A state tournament next week in Georgetown.
