The Elizabethtown Lady Panthers could be many things tonight.
Cold. Bus lagged. Sick. Beaten up.
But one thing they insist they won’t be is afraid.
Heading into tonight’s showdown at 6 with the top-ranked defending state champion Covington Notre Dame Pandas (24-2-1) in the opening semifinal of the KHSAA Girls’ Soccer State Tournament final four at Lexington Paul Dunbar High School, the 5th Region Tournament champion Lady Panthers (17-5-2) are relatively at ease.
