Pella Christian Soccer Teams Drop Matches to Newton

Posted: Friday, May 18th, 2018 at 5:57 am

Senior night festivities came to a disappointing end for the Pella Christian soccer team, falling in the 98th minute in the 2nd overtime to Newton 1-0.

Head Coach Mike Buchheit tells KNIA/KRLS Sports goalkeeper Bekah Horstman had an excellent night, and he was hopeful the defense could carry them to a penalty kick shootout, but Newton was able to find the deciding goal as time was winding down. The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for the Eagles, who look to bounce back at Oskaloosa Tuesday in the conference finale.

Pella Christian’s boys fell to Newton 10-0 at the home of the Cardinals as well. They begin the playoffs Monday at North Polk.
