The Munford Lady Cougars set up the trilogy by beating Dyer County last Tuesday in the District 13-3A Soccer Tournament Semifinal.
The victory set up Thursday night’s third match up between Munford and Brighton. The Lady Cardinals, regular-season champions of the district, played host to their rivals at the Brighton Stadium.
In the previous two games, the first ended in a deadlock and the Lady Cardinals won 4-2 to earn the No. 1 seed. Kyle Selby’s Lady Cougars came ready to get their first win over Brighton in 2014.
But the physical play limited both team scoreless until a Lady Cardinal goal from Holly Maddox with 34 minutes and 58 seconds remaining.
That one goal was enough for Brighton to prevail 1-0 and win the tournament championship. Both teams advanced to play in Tuesday’s Region 7-3A Soccer Tournament against either Arlington or Bartlett.
Brighton will host their game Tuesday night, while Munford will travel to the District 14-3A champion.
