Kenton Ridge’s girls soccer team edged visiting Benjamin Logan 2-0 on Wednesday in a Division III sectional tournament opener.
The second-seeded Cougars move to 13-2 on the year and host fourth-seeded Greenon on Saturday in the sectional semifinals. The Raiders end their season with a 6-9-2 record.
“I think this season was a step in the right direction,” said Ben Logan girls head coach David Evans. “In the regular season we won or tied as many games as we lost and that hasn’t happened here in a long time. As long as the girls put in the work in the off-season, next year should be even better.”
Kenton Ridge scored early in the game for a 1-0 lead at halftime. Ben Logan’s defense played strong in the second half, but gave up a goal with seven seconds to play for a 2-0 final.
“We played without the injured Taylor Coy, who has become a very good sweeper,” said Evans. “Kaci Oswalt moved to sweeper for the first time and played like she had been there all season. We also moved Shelby Kramer to right back for the first time and she teamed with Kessie Rose and Hannah Boysel, our other backs, to limit Kenton Ridge’s opportunities.”
