The Kincardine District Secondary School girls soccer team routed Grey-Highlands Friday afternoon and advanced to yesterday’s BAA championship tournament in Owen Sound.

The Knights dominated the BAA quarter-final match-up from start to finish, beating the visiting Lions by a 6-1 score. Kayla Crouchman and Amelia Davidson paced the Kincardine attack, each scoring a pair of goals. Becca Austman and Taylor Risteen each added a goal in the win.

The Knights, without the services of goaltender Siobhan Burbidge, rotated goaltenders several times throughout the game.

Later in the day, the KDSS lost a heartbreaker in the boys quarter-final game at the Davidson Centre.

The visiting St. Mary’s Mustangs scored as time expired to tie the match-up at 3-3. The Mustangs then scored in overtime to earn a berth in the BAA tourney.

Jared Purvis, Matt Watson and Michael Wick each scored for Kincardine, whose season came to an end with the loss.

The girls team was scheduled to open the BAA tournament with a semi-final game yesterday (Tuesday) morning at 10 a.m.
