The Shelby County boys' soccer team beat visiting North Oldham 2-0 Tuesday to advance to the 16th District title game.

The Rockets got two goals from Sawyer Abshire, one in the first half and one in the second, and held off North Oldham over the final few minutes for the win.

Shelby will now play Oldham County in the championship game Wednesday at the SCHS athletic complex. The Colonels topped South Oldham 6-1 in the night's first semifinal.

The win also put the Rockets into the 8th Region tournament for the first time in more than 10 years. The Region tournament will begin next week.
