OXFORD Donoho’s boys and girls stand one more victory away from defending their Calhoun County soccer championships.

The girls beat Oxford 5-0 in Tuesday’s semifinals at Choccolocco Park, and the boys beat White Plains 3-0.

Donoho’s girls will play Jacksonville on Thursday at 5 p.m., and the boys will play top seed Oxford on Thursday at 7 p.m. Jacksonville’s girls beat Saks 9-3 on Tuesday, and Oxford’s boys beat Jacksonville 8-0.

Both Donoho teams won titles last year. There weren’t enough boys teams to support an official county tournament in 2023, but the Donoho won the Isaac Crook Invitational, the de facto county championship, beating Oxford 2-1.

Donoho’s girls are going for their seventh consecutive county title, and the boys hope to make it three in a row.

Here are details from Tuesday’s semifinals:


DONOHO 3, WHITE PLAINS 0: Donoho got two goals from Sam Johnson and one from Jack Thomas.

OXFORD 8, JACKSONVILLE 0: Oxford got two goals apiece from Aldo Gutierrez, Isaac Hernandez and Yandel Amador. Tristen Koontz scored one.


DONOHO 5, OXFORD 0: Anna Kate Wallace had three goals and an assist. Zoe Christopher added a goal and two assists. Erin Turley scored one goal, and Izzy Romaro added and assist.

JACKSONVILLE 9, SAKS 3: Willa Kate Walker scored four goals, and Jacksonville got two goals and two assists from Emerson Weaver. Sarah Sloughfy had two goals and an assist, and Lexi Page added a goal and an assist.

Also adding assists were Emma Easterling, Sophia Snyder and Kylie Terrell with one each. Easterling, Joeh Kim and Grace Boothe led the defense.
