Eastview High School
The Lightning travelled to Eagan High School to take on the top ten ranked Wildcats on Tuesday night. The game started wonderfully for the Lightning as they controlled the play early. The midfield was controlled by Junior Lauren Glas and Sophomore Kate Giere. The Lightning defense was fantastic and Senior, goalkeeper Liv Johnson was able to stop anything that got through. The Lightning offense was able to generate a number of chances and Senior Ellie Murray even hit the post on one shot.
The second half saw a reinvigorated Wildcat squad eager to defend their home field. The Wildcats were fast and physical and the play changed to the Lightning end of the field. The Wildcats were able to sneak into the box and draw a foul resulting in a penalty kick and the game’s only goal.
The Lightning will now host crosstown rival Rosemount on Thursday night at 7:00, be there!
