Two local teams will be playing for championships on Thursday as both the Greeneville Lady Devils and the Chuckey-Doak Lady Knights won their soccer games on Thursday to advance to their respective district title games to be played on Thursday.

Greeneville picked up an 8-0 win against Volunteer in the District 1-AA semi-finals. Greeneville had a opening round bye and was able to host the game, therefore Greeneville held a Senior night to honor the seniors on the team. The Lady Devils were led by standout Sydney Finchum with two goals and one assist while Emily Graham, Emily Shaw, Ivey Runion, Lindsey Cook, Macy Vermillion and Olivia Books all also scored for Greeneville in the shutout win.

Chuckey-Doak and West Greene faced off from CDHS on Tuesday as well with the Lady Knights earning a 9-0 victory in the District 1-A semi-finals. It was a career evening for Madison Marion who finished with five goals and one assist in the big win for the Lady Knights. Joining Marion in the scoring column on Tuesday included Carissa Dailey, Cristina Vasquez, Emma Riddle and Jessica Morrison as Chuckey-Doak ends the West Greene Lady Buffs season.

Due to an upset as Sullivan Central knocked off Elizabethton, Greeneville will get the opportunity to play for the District Championship at home as they'll host Sullivan Central in the tournament finals on Thursday evening beginning at 6:00 PM. The Lady Knights will also play for a District Title as they'll play at University High Thursday at 6:00 PM.
