Four teams from the Upper Cumberland area participated in their respective Region Tournament semifinals on Tuesday night. All four teams had their seasons ended Tuesday night.
The Cookeville Lady Cavaliers, runners-up in the District 7-3A Tournament last week, made the trip to Murfreesboro to face a strong Oakland Lady Patriots team in the Region 4-3A semis. Oakland put one in the net within the first five minutes of the match, then proceeded to score four total first half goals en route to a dominating 5-0 win over the Lady Cavs. Cookeville finishes their season 10-6-4 overall.
Meanwhile, District 6-2A Champion, Livingston Academy, had their season ended at home against Anderson County in the Region 3-2A semis. The Lady Mavericks escaped with a 1-0 victory, handing the Lady Wildcats (14-6-1) only their second loss since August 21. Ironically, the other loss was also to Anderson County, 3-1, back on September 28.
District 6-2A runner-up, Cumberland County, also had their season end Tuesday night. The Lady Jets dropped a 4-1 match at District 5-2A champ, Kingston. Cumberland County (11-5-3) had played the unbeaten Lady Yellow Jackets (13-0-2) to a 4-4 tie, just two weeks ago.
Warren County’s season also came to an end, as the Lady Pioneers (14-6) lost a 6-5 shootout at McMinn County. Warren County was the runner-up in District 6-3A.
