Hillcrest Hornets – 1
Willard Tigers – 1
In an entertaining game that featured a pair of teams that will rely heavily on youth, it was the Hornet’s who struck first this evening. Starting with a 50/50 ball won in the middle by sophomore Shanon Thomas, her midfield partner Raechal Gramm picked up the loose ball and sent senior Courtney Busby down the right side. Busby’s speed and hard work was rewarded when she lofted a cross to the far side that was met by sophomore Cassie Farrell perfectly, heading it past the keeper in the 47th minute.
The Tiger’s, surprised by the athletic and hard tackling Hornets, fought back and put tremendous pressure on the Hornets who calmly responded to the challenge. It was only a 79th minute direct kick (see below) by freshman Miriam Dashtipour that allowed the Tiger’s to continue play. Two scoreless overtime periods led to penalty kicks which were won by the Hornets. Hillcrest scored two out of the first four and while the Tigers had three shots blocked by Hornet’s goalkeeper ? and the final shot went wide, giving the Hornet’s the win on a 2-1 margin.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYmHbcRsqKM]
