"They took 40 minutes to show up,"  East Hamilton head coach Carrie Hill said after the game. "I think in the first half we had some jitters and some nerves."  

Offical stats had East Hamilton with 12 shots on goal and Lexington with four.  East Hamilton;s Julia Kaset, Lauren Barcelona and Madeline Frank kept Lexington goal keeper Presley Fehland busy as she finished with 10 saves. 

When asked about being at the state tournament Hill said it is always their goal. 

"It's always been our goal to be here,"  Hill said.  "The boys team has been here three times and this is our first.  We are led well by our seniors and every day is about getting better." 

When asked about Thursday's opponent White House, Hill said "Every team is contending for a title, we just need to get some rest and come back and play our game." 

They return to Richard Siegel Soccer complex on Thursday to play White House in the Class AA state semifinals at 4:30 CST.
