The Daniel Boone Lady Blazers have been able to top every county team they have faced this year and that trend continued on Monday, as they defeated Sullivan Central for the second time this season with a 2-0 win.
Now, Daniel Boone (15-3) has set up a showdown with Tennessee High — a city school. All three losses for the Lady Blazers have come from city schools (Tennessee High 3-0, Dobyns-Bennett 4-0 and Science Hill 8-1.)
“That kind of gives us a little fire to play hard,” said Daniel Boone’s Emily Sizemore about the Lady Blazers outcomes against city schools. “We are ready. We just need to come out there and play hard and play as a team.”
“I think if we can just get passed the name on their jersey, then we will be fine.”

Sizemore scored the Lady Blazers first goal against Sullivan Central on Monday with 21 minutes left in the first half.
The second score of the night came from Lauren Wrigley with just over four minutes remaining in the contest. Now the Lady Blazers will turn their attention to the number one seeded Lady Vikings, who they fell to on the road earlier this season 3-0.
While it might be a tough task, Seiss said that his girls are more than capable of overcoming that city wall they keep running into, but it will be tough.
“We can’t make any mistakes, zero. They are a very disciplined team and they can maneuver the ball well,” Seiss said. “If we make any mental errors, they will capitalize on them.”
His junior defender Bayleigh Carmichael agreed.
“If we can get a goal or two on them early and we just play hard, I think that we can outplay them if we just play smart,” Carmichael said. “I think if you can get passed the name on their jersey, then you will be fine.”
Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. at Science Hill. The winner will advance to the Region Tournament after a contest against either Science Hill or Dobyns-Bennett in the championship.
