HENDERSONVILLE - The Hendersonville Lady Commandos repeated as District 10-AAA Tournament Champions following a 4-0 win over Gallatin Thursday night.
“You never get used to this,” Plummer said. “It’s like eating ice cream, you always want a little more. We got the job done tonight. It wasn’t always pretty, but we got the job done. Again, we had different people step up and that has kind of been our story all year.”
Reagan Tate scored two goals to lead the team while Anabelle Proctor and Allie Hines scored the other two. Proctor, Jaclyn Jarrett, and Cookie Morgan each added an assist.
“Going back to what we always talk about and our culture, they know what our history and tradition is, but they have expectations too,” Plummer added. “They’re competitive and want to do well. They deserve all the credit in the world.”
The district championship victory is the second in-a-row for Hendersonville and eighth out of the last nine seasons for Hendersonville.
“We are all about the championship plaque,” Plummer said.
Hendersonville carried a 1-0 lead into the half after Hines found the back of the net just two minutes into the match.
A kick save from Gallatin keeper Emma Donley found Reagan Tate’s foot at the 6-yard marker, and all the freshman had to do was kick it clean for the 2-0 lead just four minutes into the second half.
Seven minutes later senior Jaclyn Jarret played a beautiful ball to Proctor who finished the goal for the commanding 3-0 advantage.
Tate drove the nail in the coffin 10 minutes later on a Cookie Morgan pass for the 4-0 lead.
“We just didn’t get the job done tonight,” Gallatin head coach Greg Harper said. “Hendersonville played great and deserve all the credit. I think Tuesday night was an emotional win for us and we never recovered. Now we get to take a couple days off to come back and get our composure. We realize what is ahead us. We get one chance to take care of business and give ourselves an opportunity to get to the state tournament.”
Both Hendersonville and Gallatin will play in the Region 5 semifinals on Tuesday with Hendersonville hosting District 9 runner up Lebanon and Gallatin traveling to District 10 champion Mt. Juliet.
The Golden Bears defeated Lebanon 3-1 in their district championship.
Match times are both set for 7 p.m.
