The Lady Wildcats have a date with JL Mann this Saturday to decide the 5A State Championship! The finale will be held at Irmo High School and is a rematch of the 2016 state final won in OT by Lexington.
The Cats moved on by beating Wando in OT to claim the Lower State title. After a scoreless 1st half, Lexington got on the board first 5:48 in to the 2nd half when Susanna Hutto scored off a pass from Mary Katherine Waters. The lead held up until the 37:46 mark when Wando tied the contest.
In the 2nd OT period, Waters found the net at 1:18 and the Cats held on for the victory, 2-1. Lexington is now 21-1, the only loss coming at the hands of Clover early in the season. Clover fell to JL Mann on Monday evening by a 4-1 final to send Mann to the championship match.
