Girls Almost Pull Off 1 Seed Upset
The girls’ soccer team suited up for their last game of the season on Thursday night. They definitely had no plans of giving McPherson a free ride to State. The girls had to travel to the 1 seeded McPherson Bull Pups who they had previously been shutout by 2-0. The girls had a difficult schedule all year and came into the game with a losing record against the 13-3-1 Bull Pups. The girls fought hard, and with stellar defense held McPherson to no goals in the first half. McPherson had a slight edge in the control of the game, but the Rockets held on. They held on until they finally had a good chance, and they capitalized. Sophomore, Alyssa Knaak, scored from a pass from her sister Hannah. In the closing minutes of the game, McPherson finally scored, with a questionable call after making contact with goalkeeper Meredith Bartley. The girls moved onto overtime against the 1 seed. McPherson looked anxious on the field and slightly worried. They stuck to it and on their final run scored. Off of a cross from the left side, Jessie Kynaston redirected the ball to the far post around Bartley. Coach Garver was very proud of the way the girls played not only Thursday night, but all season. The girls had to deal with a tough season and they dealt with it very well. Congratulations on the Rockets fantastic season, with such small numbers coming out for the team.
