The Dublin Jerome High School girls soccer team continued its domination of Central District opponents with a 7-0 win over Olentangy Orange in a Division I district final on Saturday, Oct. 29, at Thomas Worthington.

The top-seeded Celtics improve to 17-1-1 and will play Gahanna or Westerville North in a regional semifinal on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at Dublin Scioto. The regional final will be played Nov. 5 at Dublin Coffman.

The 12th seed, Orange finished 11-8.

Jerome outscored its three opponents in the district tournament 27-0, beating Westland 10-0 on Oct. 20 and Upper Arlington 10-0 on Oct. 25.

"We know this is going to get tougher," Jerome coach Josh Brader said. "This is an unbelievably talented district and we know that both Gahanna and Westerville North are very good. We understand as we get going it's going to get more and more difficult every game."

The district championship is Jerome's first since winning a Division II title in 2004.

"This is exciting for them," Brader said of his players. "They're taking this in all together."

Against Orange, the Celtics led 3-0 at halftime on goals by Amelia Robison, Kaitlin Miller and Courtney Kobashigawa. Miller, Katie Mazurek, Lindsay Agnew and Makenzie Costner scored second-half goals.

Costner's goal came on a penalty kick with 2 minutes, 27 seconds left.

The Pioneers' best scoring chance came in the first half when Jerome goalkeeper Megan O'Donnell batted a shot by Brittany Barber over the net with 5:30 remaining.

"Jerome is a very loaded program, but I'm extremely proud of how we played today," Orange coach Jen Odebrecht said. "I know the score obviously reflected Jerome was the dominant team, but we had one senior (Rachael Wintering) on the field and we're a very young team that started the season 0-3. So to be in the district final, I'll take that on a rebuilding year anytime."
