Overtime Again Unkind to PC Girls Soccer

An opportunity for victory again slipped away from the Pella Christian girls soccer team, as the Lady Eagles found themselves on the wrong side of a 2-1 shoot-out loss Thursday night against Winterset.  

Pella Christian was on the board first, though, thanks to a goal from Marissa Ferguson just over midway through the first half.  It seemed like the lone goal would hold, but the Huskies took advantage of a scramble in front of the Lady Eagles’ goal to put in the game-tying goal with just minutes left – eventually forcing overtime.  After two scoreless overtime periods, the match went to a shootout, with Winterset coming out on time.  

It was the fifth overtime game of the season for the Pella Christian girls, and the third time the match was ended in a shoot-out.
