Stewarts Creek continued their best season in school history, avenging last week’s loss in the District 7-AAA Final to Oakland, returning the favor 1-0 and claiming the Region 4-AAA Championship. In a tightly contested battle, one goal was all the Lady Red Hawks would need this time around as Hallie Cherry stopped everything Oakland shot at goal.
The Lady Red Hawks goal came early in the 2nd half. In the game’s 44th minute, Dakota Mitchell intercepted a corner kick in the Stewarts Creek defensive half of the field, raced down the left center of the field on her dribble into the Oakland end, found Delaney Mitchell on the right side with a pass into space, and Delaney drove to the left and beat Oakland’s keeper for what proved to be the winning goal.
With this victory Stewarts Creek earns the right to host a Sectional game against Region 3-AAA runner up Soddy Daisy on Saturday at the stadium. Gametime is 6pm.
