LANCASTER - The Danville girls captured their first district title since 2001 with a 2-1 win over Marion County in the 29th District Tournament championship Saturday at Garrard County.
The Lady Admirals also earned the right to host the 15th Region Tournament, which is expected to begin Monday night.
Danville (13-3-1) rallied in the second half after Marion (10-6) took a 1-0 lead midway through the first half.
"We've been down before in games ... and rather than giving up, I think they actually responded the opposite way," Danville coach Michael Lauer said. "You don't always win those games, but this is one of those games where they responded in the right way. Usually with young kids you don't see that."
Tasha Milby tied the game in the 42nd minute with a 20-yard shot that glanced off the Marion goalkeeper's outstretched hand and into the top corner of the net.
