Redwomen blank SP to earn share of OVC soccer title
PEDRO — Hoist the banner.
The Rock Hill Redwomen blanked the South Point Lady Pointers 4-0 on Wednesday to locked up a share of the Ohio Valley Conference soccer championship.
Rock Hill is 14-1-1 overall and finishes tied with Gallipolis at 7-1 in the league. The two teams split their series this season with each team winning at home.
Rock Hill got what proved to be the only goal that it needed just two minutes into the game when Makayla Scott score with an assist from Bri Reynolds.
The score remained that way until early in the second half when Reynolds scored an unassisted goal at the 47-minute mark.
Senior Regan Massie got the next two Rock Hill goals — the first of her career. She scored with 55 minutes on the clock with an assist from Scott, and in the same minute scored an unassisted goal.
The Redwomen had 21 shots to just three for the Lady Pointers. Each team had three corner kicks.
Rock Hill goalie Grace Stevens had one save and South Point’s Emily Byrd got four saves.
In the sectional tournament on Monday, Rock Hill plays a 5 p.m. home game against the winner of the Zane Trace vs. Southeastern game while South Point (4-11-1) travels to Minford.
