Game Recap

The Eagles women’s soccer team hosted Holland Christian in the soccer district semi-final. In the first half, the Eagles controlled possession, but it was the Maroons who got on the board fist when they scored on a corner kick that eluded Goalie Lauren May for a 1-0 halftime advantage. In the second half, the Eagles dominated and finally found the net on a nifty shot by Maria Vanderlei off a nice pass from Meg Noordewier. GR Christian applied constant pressure for the rest of the second half and both ten minute overtimes. As a result of the scoreless overtime periods, the game would be decided by penalty kicks. HC led off the penalties with a calmly placed shot into the corner. Emily Mindling was first up for the Eagles, as she has been perfect on all four penalties so far this year. She remains perfect in her penalty kicks by beating the Holland keeper, making the score 1-1. Goal keeper, Lauren May, came up big on Holland’s second kick by deflecting it away. Christian’s second kicker, Myah Diekema, gave the Eagles a 2-1 advantage by converting her opportunity. Keeper May outdid herself with a spectacular save on Holland’s third attempt. Becca Mindling gave the Eagles a 3-1 lead by hammering her kick into the back of the net. Holland Christian converted their fourth kick to pull within one, at 3-2. Senior defender, Danielle Toren, stepped up with a chance to clinch the Eagle victory and did not disappoint. She calmly delivered into the left corner for insurmountable 4-2 advantage. The Eagles advance to play Zeeland West in Saturday’s 1pm district final at the Eagles stadium.
