Eastview High School
Sadly, the Eastview Lightning season came to end in the section semi-finals last night at Wildcat stadium against #1 seed Eagan.
The Lightning struck first! Just 13 seconds into the game Junior, Abby Sutton scored a goal to give Eastview the lead. The goal was created off the kickoff by Junior, Lauren Glas and tremendous pressure and hustle by Sophomore, Cora Smith.
The game was back a forth for a long time with the Lightning defense anchored by Seniors, Mary Keating, Holly Sodomka and Junior, Mikayla Walters. Senior, goaltender Liv Johnson had some key saves and punch-outs. However, Eagan was able to knock in a goal off of a corner kick in the first half to tie it up. The Wildcats were also able to get a second goal off of a corner kick to take the lead and win the game.
Senior, Ellie Murray put the Wildcats under tremendous pressure all night and was able to earn a few corner kicks for the Lightning. However, the Lightning were unable to capitalize and tie the game. The Lightning gave everything they had to mount a final attack and each girl played their heart to try and get the tying goal.
