Game Recap

The Eagles traveled to Coopersville to face FHN for a chance to advance to the D2 state semi-finals. The Huskies scored first, but the Eagles battled and evened the score on a successful penalty kick by Emily Mindling. The second half was all Eagles as they controlled possession and had more dangerous opportunities. A few big saves by the FHN keeper kept the Eagles from attaining the decisive goal. Overtime ensued and the Eagles looked on in disbelief as the Huskies scored a few minutes in on a controversial none offsides interpretation. The girls didn’t quit and appeared on the verge of an equalizer that a Husky defender kicked away after it had eluded the keeper. The 2-1 loss was a disappointing finish to a thrilling tournament run. Many thanks to the graduating senior Eagles: defenders Maria Bolt, Emily Mindling, and Danielle Toren, midfielders Meg Noordewier and Cassandra Bosworth, and Goalie Lauren May. These seniors have all given Eagle fans a lot to be proud of. The future looks bright as the team returns juniors Kelli Doyle, Myah Diekema, Maria Vander Lei, Hannah Warners, Anna Hancock and Brenna Otte. Sophomores Becca Mindling, Elly Zandee and Sarah Van Dyke and freshmen Anna Mucci, Mckenzie Campbell and Jadon Kuiken all return as well. May, Emily Mindling, Toren and Doyle all received All-Conference and Diekema and Vander Lei earned honorable mention. Congrats Eagles on a great season!!!
