Blackman High School
Stewarts Creek High School
The Lady Red Hawks won their 1st round playoff game with a strong 3-0 performance against the Blackman Lady Blaze. Stewarts Creek set the tone early by scoring in the 6th minute when Dakota Mitchell found room behind the left side of Blackman’s defense, dribbled in on the right side of the penalty area, then finished to the far post for the 1-0 lead. In the 31st minute Katie Nyland made it 2-0 when she took a Rylei Skinner pass from the left touch line, touched it forward, and drilled a shot into the upper right corner of goal from about 35 yards out.
In the 41st minute, just after halftime, Delaney Mitchell beat the Blackman defense, all 12 of them on the field at the time, when she stole a pass in the attacking third, dribbled in on the left side, and finished to the right side of goal past the keeper. Stewarts Creek enjoyed a strong defensive effort as Hallie Cherry completed her 3rd shutout of Blackman on the season.
