Girls Soccer Recaps from Tuesday, September 14

There may be updates, so please check back.

(VAR) Franklin County 5 (home), Rushville 4 (4-3 PKs)
Tied 1-1 at half.
Tied 3-3 after regulation.
Tied 4-4 after OT.
Franklin County won PK shootout 4-3 to win match 5-4.

Edited Franklin County recap from coach Cindy Adams:  The Cardiac Cats came from behind to beat Rushville 5-4 (4-3 PKs) after two overtime halves and a PK shootout. Goals scored: Kamryn Dozier 3 Jordan Nichols 2, Morgan Stewart 2. Assists: Claudia Mauntel, Kylee Bolser, Jordan Nichols, Kamryn Dozier.

Our Player of the Match was Maegan Pearson. After saving two PK’s she scored the game winning PK.

Our midfield and defense were excellent as usual and kept great possession. Everyone played their role well and the deep bench in Madesyn Sunderhaus, Kylee Bolser, Lily Knapp, Paige Ashcraft, Mackinzie Brzezinksi, and Liz Wendell are the secret sauce of the season.

Edited Rushville recap from coach Kallie Peterman: The Lady Lions took a hard loss on the road against the Lady Wildcats. The final score after two 7 minute overtimes and one round of penalty kicks was 5-4 (4-3 PKs), Franklin County. After regulation, the score was 3-3. Goals were scored by Jin Calaf, Lexi Morris and Allie Yung. Morris’ goal was on a free kick at the sideline and Yung’s goal was a penalty kick following a Franklin County infraction in the box.

After finishing regulation in a tie, the game moved to two, seven-minute halves for overtime. During OT’s first half, Yung scored a lone goal off a free kick to bring the score 4-3 Rushville. In the second OT half, Franklin County secured another goal, tying the score at 4-4.

The game moved to penalty kicks. Izzy Wilson, Yung, Morris, Belle Gossett and Audrey Gulley were selected to take the PKs for Rushville. While Yung, Morris and Gossett scored three goals for Rushville, Franklin County scored four in the PK round.

The defensive line was able to hold the Lady Wildcats for seven offside calls. Keeper Macy Jo Seyfferle had three saves and Morris had 13.

We played with a fire for the game that we haven’t seen to this extent all season. We knew it was going to be a good match. Last year, we also lost to Franklin County after two seven minute overtimes and a PK shootout. Our girls left everything they had out on that field.

Looking back at the game, I don’t know if there is anything we should or could have done differently. Our defensive line played one of their best games and our midfield and offensive players worked incredibly well together up top.

Lexi Morris made another appearance at keeper which is not her typical position. She had an amazing second half and overtime. She guessed every single penalty kick correctly and just barely missed the ones that squeezed by. Not many goalies can jump the right way for every single kick, but Lexi did and we are so proud of her effort. We had so many great things going for us, and I know we will take what we learned and apply it to the rest of our games this week.

More recaps follow.
