ROLLA - This one meant more.
After a three-goal win over Rolla on May 7 at the 179 Soccer Park, Helias was tasked with beating the Lady Bulldogs on the road with the stakes a little bit higher.
The Lady Crusaders did just that, using a second-half goal to win the Class 2 District 10 Tournament championship 1-0 on Thursday.
Becky Roberts scored with 18:06 left in the contest to send Helias through to the sectional round.
Liz Czarnecki picked up the shutout in goal.
Helias (14-8) will travel to Union (17-5) for a 5 p.m. sectional Tuesday at their middle school.
