The Carroll Lady Dragons are one victory away from a trip to the Class 5A state tournament.
The Lady Dragons (28-2) outlasted Hebron 2-1 in a physical battle Friday in a Region I Semifinal at Birdville ISD Fine Arts/Athletics Complex in North Richland Hills. Carroll advances to the Region I final against Marcus at noon Saturday. Marcus defeated Keller 2-0.
The Region I tournament was moved from Midland to North Richland Hills on Wednesday due to all eight teams in the boys’ and girls’ field being from North Texas.
Carroll took a 2-0 lead in the first half on goals from freshman Grace Cory and senior Julia Dyche. Hebron cut the lead in half but was held scoreless by the Lady Dragon defense in a physical second half.
