Coffey’s late goal gives Lady Lakers district semifinal win

Addison Coffey has come up big all season for the Russell County Middle School Lady Laker Soccer team, and Coffey did it again Tuesday night, scoring a goal with just five seconds remaining to lift the Lady Lakers over Northern Pulaski by a score of 2-1 in the district semifinals.

Bella Blakey added the other goal for Russell County and goalkeeper Misha Gregory came up clutch, giving up just one goal and recording 10 saves.

The 2-seed Lady Lakers will play for the district championship on Thursday at Southwestern where they will play the 1-seed Southern Middle School.

Southern won both regular season matchups, with each game being decided by one goal.

Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. CT.
