Junior Josie Rickets scored twice early in the first half and the Ravenwood Lady Raptors grounded the high-scoring Stewarts Creek Lady Red Hawks to advance to the Class AAA state semifinals.
The Ravenwood Lady Raptors advanced to the Class AAA State Tournament semifinals with a 4-1 win against Stewarts Creek in the first round on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019 in Murfreesboro.
Ravenwood earned a 4-1 win Wednesday at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex in the opening round of the state tournament. The Lady Raptors earned a shot at two-time defending champion Houston Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
Raptors defeated the reigning state champion Houston 1-0 in a muddy thriller and will once again take on region foe Brentwood on Saturday for a State Championship edition Battle of the Woods.
Despite playing in a giant puddle at the Richard Siegel Soccer Complex, the Ravenwood junior tracked down a long ball from teammate Sarah Cloud and shed two slipping, sliding Houston defenders before launching a right-footed rocket to the upper right of the goal.
