Eastview High School
Apple Valley High School
The Eastview Lighting dropped one tonight against the Apple Valley Eagles. The Lightning started the scoring after some great play in the midfield. They were able to work the ball into the Apple Valley eighteen and Junior, Haley Ford was able to put the ball away.
With about 10 minutes to go, the referee made an egregious decision and decided to red card a Lightning player. This gave Apple Valley some momentum and they were able to tie the game up before the half with a rebound goal.
The second half was played with incredible effort by the Lightning team. Despite being down a player, they were able to connect passes and make runs and be dangerous. The Lightning actually out shot the Eagles in the second half. However, the Eagles gained a corner kick and when the clearing didn’t go far enough the Eagles knocked in the second ball.
The section playoffs start on Tuesday Night and the Lightning will be ready!
