With a 2-1 victory against 12th-ranked Center Grove, the No. 2 Avon Orioles girls soccer team is headed to the Class 2A state finals.
Center Grove reached the championship match of Saturday’s Evansville Semistate after beating No. 9 Evansville Memorial in the morning session, 1-0, on a first half goal by junior Brittnee Gilbert off of an assist from senior Hanna Johnson.
In the nightcap, the Trojans (15-4-3) got on the board first with a goal by junior Amber Perry. But the Orioles tied it before halftime and got the winning goal from Bailee Storms early in the second half.
