Fast forward to 2010, and Moslemi is now playing for North Oldham, and Washington County has just a handful of experienced players with a lot of youth waiting in the wings.

    The important thing to remember in most sporting events is that no matter if it’s a close 1-0 win or a battle of offensive output, you only need to better your opponent by one. That’s what the Washington County Commanderettes learned as they beat the Bethlehem Banshees 22-21 in Campbellsville April 17 during play in the 5th Region All ‘A’ Tournament.

    Both teams kept pace with each other as they posted two runs each in the first inning and added two more in the second to tie the game at 4-4.
