Apple Valley High School
Eastview High School
In a rematch from their last regular season game, Eastview defeated the Apple Valley Eagles tonight. In the first round of sections the Lightning were the #3 seed, at home, taking on #6 Apple Valley. However, you can throw out those numbers when these cross town rivals meet.
The Lightning defense was up to the challenge tonight and really limited Apple Valley’s offensive opportunities. The defense held Valley to only 5 shots and 2 corner kicks for 80 minutes. An impressive feat as Apple Valley has some fast and tenacious forwards.
The Lightning offense got rolling when Junior, Haley Ford played a ball up to Junior, Molly Beckman and she drove it home. Senior, Erin Lunde scored the game’s second goal and the first of her Varsity career before the first half whistle. Erin finished off a nice little support pass from Junior, Sally Nelson. The final goal of the game came in the second half when Molly Beckman turned on the jets and beat the Apple Valley midfield and drove a beautiful shot into the corner of the Eagle net.
The Lightning will now take on the #2 seed Burnsville at 7:00 on Thursday night at Burnsville.
