The Shelbyville Central Golden Eaglette soccer team battled till the final second on the clock in a 4-3 loss to Lincoln County in the opening round of the District 8-AAA Tournament on Tuesday night to close out the season.

Karley Simmons, Ory Gandarilla and Kaylee Canon each found the back of the net in the second half for the Eaglettes.

“We had a great second half, but we just ran out of time,” Shelbyville Central coach Neal Gordon said. “It’s been kind of a long season but a lot of young kids got some playing time which will make us better in the future. We had a great group of seniors that lead us.”

Coach Gordon is excited about the future of the team.

“Teams are made in the offseason and after a little break, we look forward to getting ready for next year.
