Lady Stangs Burn Beechwood 3-0
September 11, 2013By Brad Gough of Bishop Brossart High School
The Lady Stangs left it to late to do some damage on the scoreboard against the Lady Tigers of Beechwood. Junior Nicole Goderwis opened the scoring with her third goal of the season after Senior Cori Ziegler found her in the open field. Though they kept the pressure high, they were unable to score again in the first half and went into halftime with a narrow 1-0 lead.
The second half was more of the same as Brossart put the pressure on the Beechwood goal. With just a 1-0 lead and 7 minutes remaining, a Lady Tiger broke free of the Brossart defense and was one on one with Senior Sarah Futscher in goal. "Futch" came out on top of the duel and preserved the lead and the shutout. Ziegler took her cue, and broke in the open field hitting a shot on goal which the Tiger keeper was barely able to keep out. Fellow Senior Madison Linebach was on hand to put in the rebound and double the Lady Stang lead.
A few minutes later Senior Abby Stadtmiller sealed the victory by scoring off another great run and pass by Ziegler. The Lady Stangs will be back in action on Saturday in the 10th Region All "A" tournament final against Calvary Christian.
