A Hard Fought Loss

Jennifer Counts reported for the JV Girls Soccer team.

The JV Girls Soccer team faced the Indian Hill Braves on Sept 21.  It was a beautiful night for soccer.  The Cowboys took an early lead in the first few minutes when Hannah Stoppenhagen scored off a corner kick.  The corner was put in play by Maddy Counts and redirected by Annah Saladonis.  The Cowboys dominated possession and shots on goal much of the first half.  While questioned even by the Indian Hill coaches, the Braves were awarded a goal off a free kick right in front of the penalty arc that bounced off the cross bar.  This brought the score to 1-1 at the half (we need goal line technology . . . ).

Indian Hill requested the game continue 10 v 10 for the second half (due to a conflict for one of their players and very few subs); the refs also added a water break.  The Braves slowed down the pace of play during the second half.  The Cowboys continued to lead in shots on goal and possession, but were not able to finish.  In an unlucky series of events, the Braves scored again in the final minutes.  The game goes down as a loss for the Cowboys with a final score of 1-2.

Thanks to Jennifer Counts for the report
