No. 5 Lexington Catholic 4, Lexington Christian 0: In addition to Browning's tallies, the Lady Knights (14-5-1) got goals from Hailey Mair and Kennedy Tranter.
Catholic led 1-0 at halftime. Browning got the goal off a direct kick from about 30 yards out on the right wing, placing the ball inside the far post.
"I know all year we've had a lot of great opportunities on free kicks," Browning said. "So I just wanted to put it on frame so hopefully we can get a deflection and someone can put it in. So I put it up to get a chance for it to go in and it happened to go in today."
The Knights had plenty of other first-half chances but couldn't convert.
"Even though it was nerve-wracking going into the second half with a 1-0 lead when they have some offensive weapons, I still thought we played well the first half," Coach Terry Quigley said. "It's just that Lexington Christian played well, too. I think Hailey's goal changed it when she hit that one on the far right. I think that the wind was taken out of their sails."
That being Mair's goal, which came with 36:01 left.
"I got a good ball from Bailey and I turned around the defender," Mair said, "and I looked up and I saw the open goal and I just took my chance."
Browning made it 3-0 with 27:58 left, firing from the left wing.
Tranter added the icing with 23:21 remaining.
Catholic's defense did the rest.
"I wouldn't want any other front line than who's in front of me," Catholic goalkeeper Olivia Meck said. "We trust each other, we work well together, we communicate. I wouldn't want any other four people in front of me."
The Eagles (9-12) gave all they had.
"I think the thought was there. It just wasn't our best game tonight, and a lot of that credit goes to Lexington Catholic," LCA Coach Steve Fugmann said. "We just didn't do everything we wanted to do tonight. We were a little hesitant offensively."
No. 16 Dunbar 1, No. 17 Tates Creek 0: Montgomery's penalty kick came with 1:55 left in the first half. The call came after Mimi Floreal was taken out in the box by the goalkeeper.
"I was proud of Mimi," Coach Tom Morgan said. "She really worked hard tonight. ... She just keeps working and working. She's hard to keep up with.
"Alyssa Montgomery just did a fantastic job of stepping up, being that confident senior and finishing up."
Montgomery picked a spot, firing to her left and just inside the post to make a winner of the Bulldogs (14-5).
"I was a little nervous because (goalkeeper Bailey McNees) was actually standing on one side of the goal, and that's usually kind of where I went," Montgomery said. "But I just focused, put it in the back of the net. All the credit to Mimi, definitely. It was just a good, solid win for us."
The Commodores (7-10-3) had plenty of chances but couldn't solve goalkeeper Morgan Tallio.
"I've been working on it all season with my lovely goalie coach, Caitlin Wohlander, and I'm kind of used to (facing tough shots) at this point," Tallio said. "It's been a rough season, but I know my team's there to back me up for everything."
That includes outside defender Reilly Teal.
"It's definitely a team effort," Teal said. "The whole team plays defense and we've just got to hold it together and back each other up, and play a pressure cover and good defense. "
As for Tates Creek, "This was just a really special group of players that I got to be around for four years," Coach Bo Lankster said. "They gave us a lot of great memories, a lot of wins. They were a really classy group of young ladies. It was fun being around them.
"Hats off to Dunbar. They've got a really good senior group and they've got a lot of classy players and a lot of very good players and they deserved to win tonight, and I wish them luck in the future, at regions."
