CORDOVA (October 20) — The McKenzie Lady Rebel soccer team will return to the TSSAA Class A State Girls’ Soccer Tournament one year after achieving the milestone for the first time in school history.
The Lady Rebels earned the tournament berth with a dominant, 9-0 road win over Memphis East in Saturday’s Sectional round.
Maggie Aird scored four goals in the contest and had one assist. Libby Oakley and Allie Chappell each had a pair of goals, and Bailey Sawyers had the other. Anna Grace Spivey had one assist.
Goalkeeper Gracie Dillingham had one save in the win.
After defeating Martin-Westview for the District 13A Championship two weeks ago, Westview avenged that loss Thursday in the Region 7A Championship (see separate story) to force McKenzie to travel Saturday.
The state tournament begins Wednesday, October 24 at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro. McKenzie will face Merrol Hyde at 4:30 p.m. on Field #2.
Westview also won its Sectional game and will face Signal Mountain at 4 p.m. on Field #1. A possible rematch (and fourth meeting of the year) between the Lady Rebels and Lady Chargers could occur in the championship game on Saturday.
