STATE FINALS: Lady Dragons drop heartbreaker to Marist

By AccessWDUN Staff

MACON — The Jefferson girls first-ever trip to the state finals ended in heartache on Thursday.

The Lady Dragons dropped a 1-0 decision in overtime to Marist at Five Star Stadium in the Class 4A state championship match.

It was a defensive slugfest the entire way. Both defenses limited the offenses scoring opportunities with the match finishing in a 0-0 tie at halftime. Regulation ended in a scoreless draw sending it to overtime.

In the first overtime, the Lady War Eagles finally broke the ice with a goal early in the first 10 minute extra period. They made it stand up the rest of the first and through the second 10-minute overtime.

Jefferson finished the season 14-4-1.
