The Rockford Christian girls soccer squad continued its roll through the postseason with a 6-1 victory over Big Northern neighbor Byron in the 1-A Genoa-Kingston sectional final.
The Lady Tigers grabbed the early 1-0 lead before the Royal Lions tallied six unanswered goals. That included a stretch of four consecutive second-half goals from senior captain Adali Johnson in less than 29 minutes of game action.
The Lady Royals are vying for their second trip to state in the last three years after finishing fourth in the 2014 postseason. They can clinch a spot in the 1-A state semifinal on Tuesday at Super-Sectionals in a matchup against Marian from Woodstock. That game starts at 6:00 on Tuesday at Hampshire.
