Doug Ezekiel couldn't remember the last time West Limestone's boys soccer team beat East Limestone.
That could be because it's been 11 years, long before he was the Wildcats' coach.
West Limestone ended that streak Tuesday with a 2-1 victory in the Limestone County Tournament semifinals. The Wildcats advanced to play Elkmont Friday in the championship game at Clements High School.
West Limestone had the best chance of the opening half Tuesday when Reed Walker's header hit the crossbar just before halftime. Following a scoreless first half, David Garcia opened the scoring in the 48th minute off an assist from Tanner Walker.
After East tied the score at 1 apiece, Jose Roman scored the game winner with three minutes to play. Roman connected on Reed Walker's corner kick to score and help West advance to the championship game at 7 p.m. Friday.
