With the score tied 2-2 at the end of regulation play, the Chelan Lady Goat soccer team had to battle through two overtime periods against the Okanogan Bulldogs to finally lose in a shootout.
“Do you know how many years its been since we have beaten Okanogan,” said a disappointed and injured Senior Casey Canavan at the Chelan volleyball game that evening.
Calling it a hard fought battle, Assistant Coach Jim Broome lauded numerous Chelan players. Chelan forward Senior Jessica Ramirez scored from an assist by Senior Erika Arechiga. Chelan’s second goal came when Sophomore midfielder Alma Franco scored on a far post loose ball.
A lot of midfield hustle by Senior Grace Moonie, Sophomores Alma Franco and Hailey Habich kept this game in check. Senior goalie Mikiya Stowe shut down numerous Okanogan scoring opportunities.
Chelan will travel to Brewster on Saturday, September 25, to take on the Lady Bears.
