The Glasgow Lady Scotties needed a district soccer win and they got one on Senior Night over Warren Central, 4-2.

After seniors Courtney Tyree and Elda Llamas-Navarro – a transfer student from Mexico – were recognized before the game, sophomore Charli Fant scored three goals.

Llamas-Navarro was credited with Glasgow’s final goal after a cross from Kayla Foster deflected off of a Central defender and into the goal. The closest offensive player gets credit on an own-goal.

Tyree got a shot in the second half on a cross from Sara Garrett, but the ball went wide left of the goal.

Glasgow head girls’ soccer coach Lora Garrett said the important thing was her team scored the Eighth District victory.

“If we win against Warren East on Monday and Barren County loses to (Central), we’ll have the No. 3 seed,” the coach explained.

The Lady Scotties district record stood at 1-2-1, with losses to Bowling Green and Greenwood and a 0-0 tie with Barren on the docket along with Tuesday’s win.

Barren County also has a 1-2-1 district record, with losses to the same two schools and a win over East. The Trojanettes host Central Saturday at the soccer complex at 4 p.m.

Warren Central scored the first goal on Tuesday about five minutes into the contest.

But two minutes later, Fant answered for Glasgow with a straight-on shot from the edge of the box.

The Lady Scotties won a goal kick, then circled the ball back in front of the goal to give Fant a clear shot.

Fant posted her second score about 10 minutes into the game with a shot from the right side that flew by the face of the goalie and into the left corner.

For the next 10 minutes, it appeared the Lady Scotties’ defense would help them protect the lead, but Central tied the game with a looping kick from outside the box that tipped off keeper Stephanie Ray’s hands and into the net.

The first half ended with the game knotted at 2-2.

It took the Lady Scotties about three minutes into the second half to take the lead for good. Fant scored her third goal on another shot from the right that looped over the fingertips of Central’s goalie.

Midway through the second half, the insurance goal came and Glasgow sagged into a conservative formation.

The Lady Scotties finished the game with 10 shots on goal on offense, and after Central’s first-half burst, Ray and the defense did not allow the Lady Dragons many looks.

“It was a very strong game for Ray, currently the 10th ranked goalie in the state,” Garrett said.

The Lady Scotties’ next game is 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at John Hardin.
