With just over 2 minutes run off the clock in the 1st overtime, Harlie Jones slid a perfectly placed ball to the feet of a driving Devin Dowell inside the box. Right as the ball arrived an Excelsior defender upended Dowell forcing her to the ground. A penalty kick was awarded to Chillicothe. Senior Mykel Heese came to the spot and buried the penalty kick to bring home the victory for the Lady Hornets.
     Chillicothe will take on St. Pius on Thursday in the district championship @ 6:00 pm at Jerry Litton Memorial Stadium.
     The win moves the Lady Hornets to 15-4 on the season and itís 12th shut-out.
