La Serna girls fall in shootout

first_img“We knew about them, and we were really trying to watch for them,” Broussard said. Trailing 2-0 at halftime, the Lancers needed just three minutes of the second half to get back into the game. Jordan Dolbin converted a penalty kick after a Sun Devil was called for a defensive hand ball in the goalkeepers box. La Serna tied the game in the 65th minute off a Dolbin throw-in that Caitlin Phillips controlled, then sent just inside the near post past a diving Gabler. Tied 2-2 at the end of regulation, Apple Valley took the lead in the first overtime when Harmony Pruett won a 50-50 ball near midfield, dribbled past a defender just inside the 18-yard box, and drove the ball past goalkeeper Keshya Locksley, who had come out to challenge. Again, the Lancers rose to the occasion as they tied the game on Stacey Cervantes’ goal off an assist from Reed. The first four players for each team scored in the penalty-kicks phase before Bergeron made the game-winner.

The game was tied 3-3, but the Sun Devils advanced after winning the shootout, 5-4. It was a stunning defeat for the Lancers, who entered the game with a 21-1-3 record, another undefeated Del Rio League season and the division’s No. 1 seed for the playoffs. WHITTIER – It was only fitting that a game that began 2 hours and 40 minutes earlier in bright afternoon sunshine ended La Serna High School’s remarkable girls soccer season in darkness early Friday evening. Apple Valley goalkeeper Kala Gabler’s diving deflection of Nicole Reed’s penalty kick in a shootout after four overtime periods provided the visiting Sun Devils with the victory in the CIF-Southern Section Division III first-round playoff game. center_img “A bad way to end the season, penalty kicks,” La Serna coach Amanda Broussard said. “PKs are not soccer. “We had plenty of opportunities, we just couldn’t capitalize on them. We should have won in the allotted time.” While the Lancers dominated play and outshot the Sun Devils 25-8, they found themselves fighting for survival much of the game. Apple Valley shocked them early with goals off a pair of low, line-drive corner kicks from Ashley Wolf that were quickly redirected into the net by Audrey Bergeron in the fifth minute and Brianna Fairfield in the 34th minute. Broussard admitted she was shocked by the quick goals, which were scored on identical plays. last_img read more
