The Rockford Lutheran Lady Crusaders soccer team captured the 2019 1-A regional championship in a 6-1 victory over Rockford Christian on Friday.
The Lady Crusaders struck first before the Lady Royal Lions answered with 15 minutes remaining in the first half at Wedgbury Stadium on the campus of Sportscore Two. Lutheran took a 2-1 lead into the ten-minute halftime before erupting for four goals in the second half to ice the victory.
Now Lutheran heads to the 1-A Indian Creek sectional semifinals, awaiting the winner of Byron-Oregon in Saturday’s regional final at Genoa Kingston. The other half of the sectional will feature the winners of Winnebago-Harvard and Stillman Valley-Hinckley Big Rock.
