*CORRECTION: The Rock Bridge athlete's name is Lexi Bumby. A previous article misspelled her name.

The Rock Bridge girls soccer team advanced to the title game of the Class 3, District 9 tournament with a 3-0 victory over tournament host Timberland on Tuesday in Wentzville.

The Bruins (10-11-2) will play Troy Buchanan (9-11-1) at 5 p.m. Thursday in Wentzville in the championship game. Troy Buchanan beat Hickman 3-0 in the late semifinal Tuesday. The Kewpies end their season at 7-12.

Lexi Bumby* scored twice for Rock Bridge in the victory over Timberland. She netted the Bruins first goal off a throw-in from Brett Fuller in the 22nd minute of the first period. She scored her second goal in the 60th minute of the second period, rebounding a shot on goal by Mary Bowman.

Kelsey Reimler had the other Rock Bridge goal, scoring off a Morgan Pitchford in the 45th minute. Goalkeeper Carrie Levy earned the shutout with four saves.
