After losing the 5th district championship, the Lyons would have the most difficult draw in the regional tournament.

Henderson County, the previous year’s champions with leading scorer Ashton Todd, was returning as well. When the teams met early in the season, Henderson took only 68 minutes to invoke the mercy rule on the Lyons, 11-1.

Henderson only needed one half to shut the Lyons out and invoke the mercy rule 10-0 in the first round semifinals of the 2nd Region tournament Monday.

Lyon County’s Luke Gilbert picked up 13 saves for the night adding to his season total of 303 saves, still ranking 4th in the state for goalkeeper saves. Lyon ends the season, 2-18.
