In one game, the team picked up a big district win and lost the other to a 10th Region opponent.
On Sept. 11, the Lady Rebels hosted Carroll County High School. After playing to a scoreless tie at the end of regulation and overtime, the two teams settled matters in a shootout with the Lady Rebels coming out on top in the 1-0 win.
Owen County’s Autumn Gover got credit for the shutout in goal.
It was the Lady Rebels’ second win over the Lady Panthers this season.
