Cookeville defeated Wilson Central Tuesday night in the district semifinals 7-1.

The Lady Cavaliers started the first half off good then exploded in the second half.

“You could tell in the beginning we had a lot of nerves to shake off, but they did that quickly and I am so proud,” said CHS head coach Lauren Metts. “It took every single one of them to step up and play as good as they could and they did that. Nobody took a playoff and it took the team a lot of individual moments as a team to step up together.”

To start the game off junior Ava Robbins hit one off of the post to make it 1-0. 

With 20 minutes left of the first half, senior Avery Brown scores a goal to make the score 2-1. Sophomore Gracie Schmitt then scored a goal to start the second half. 

With 11 minutes left in the second half, senior Abby Sanders scored a goal to make it 4-1. Junior Olivia Hudson scored a goal shortly after. Junior Cassie Gallagher scored a goal. With 1 minute left of the game Freshman Lily McWilliams scores a goal to end the game to make the final 7-1.

The Lady Cavs will travel to Mt. Juliet Thursday night at 6 p.m. for the district championship against the Golden Bears.

“This is a brand new team that I feel like has blossomed from regular season to postseason,” said Metts. “You can tell they want it, I think they made a statement tonight that shows exactly what they want to do on Thursday and how far they want to get this season.”
