Glendale Falcons – 3
Kickapoo Chiefs – 1
In a tale of two halves, the Chief’s took an early lead this evening when senior Marin Gelsheimer’s long-range stop took one bounce before skipping past the goalkeeper for a goal. Gelsheimer received the ball on a give-and-go with Megan Melugin. Catch it on KOLR10 news tonight! The Chief’s continued with their solid effort, creating more opportunities and winning loose balls consistently. It took special effort by Ashley McWilliams and Alix Opfer to stop a pair of close range opportunities in the second half that might have extended the Chief’s lead. The Falcon’s best opportunity came midway through the half when sophomore Molly Brewer put her shot from 12 yard’s out off the crossbar.
The second half started with an increase in the wind speed and the Falcon’s approach to the game. Whether from a tongue-lashing from Coach Roger’s or a look inside, the Falcon’s decided to play up to their considerable talent level in the second half. The crowd rose in anticipation seven minutes into the half when Lindsey Sprouse broke in alone on the goalkeeper, only to see her shot pushed up and over. A minute later Sprouse took a different approach, with a quick long range shot from 25 yards out in the 48th that fell underneath the crossbar and tied the game. The Falcon’s earned a corner kick 8 minutes later and when the ball popped out of a scrum in the box, sophomore Alix Opfer, who was waiting on the far side, buried her shot for the ultimate game winner. The final goal was scored by junior Emily Cline who won a goal kick that didn’t get far due to the stiff wind. She pushed the ball forward and while moving from left to right at the top of the box, pushed her shot to the far left for the final margin.
