In dramatic fashion, the Delta girls soccer team edged out Grand Valley in overtime to pick up an exciting non-league matchup on Thursday, April 12.
Grand Valley tallied the first score, when Lauren Paskett slipped a goal past Delta goalie Samantha Henderson in the first half. Henderson had an outstanding day in the net, making three saves to keep her team in the game.
Coach Julie Mottern said sisters Kristin and Lindsey Gardner delivered a potent one-two punch up front. The sisters attend Cedaredge High School.
Lindsey, a junior, had four shots during the match. One of those shots tied the game in the second half and ultimately sent the game into overtime.
Kristin, a freshman, challenges with seven shots during the game. Her last proved to be the game winner with less than two minutes left in a second overtime.
The Panthers hosted Steamboat Springs (8-2) on Saturday, April 14.
Under grey skies and a chilly wind, the Sailers came out with a hot attack. With two goals in the first half and one in the second, Steamboat came away with a 3-0 win.
Coach Mottern commented, "Katherine Jackson had a great game. She is our outside midfield player and she creates alot of offense for us. She was also a thorn in Steamboat's game and was causing a lot of trouble."
The Panthers are now 3-4 on the season. The team will see plenty of action in the coming week, with home matches on April 19 with Palisade and April 21 with Glenwood Springs, and a road trip to Moffat County on April 24.blog comments powered by Disqus
