Clarksville Lady Wildcats Soccer Advances to Regional Finals with 4-0 Win over Beech Lady Buccaneers

 

Clarksville High School WildcatsClarksville, TN – The 2014 Class AAA Girls Soccer Regional Tournament Semi-Finals started Monday at Clarksville High, School with a rematch of the Lady Wildcats against the Beech Lady Buccaneers. In August, the Lady Wildcats beat the Lady Bucs 4-2.

At some point during the regional tournament game Monday, the teams must have experienced déjà vu because the Lady Wildcats scored four goals again to defeat the Lady Bucs 4-0.

The teams appeared even early in the game. It looked as if the Lady Bucs were going to take the offensive advantage when junior Kendon Curtis received a long lob pass, sprinted by her defender and then sidestepped the Lady Wildcats charging goalkeeper, Melia Correa, for a shot on the wide open net. However, Curtis stumbled while taking the shot and missed.
