Game Recap

The Lady Trojans won a double overtime shootout thriller on the road vs Pendleton Heights 2-1 Thursday in HHC conference play. The Trojans trailed 1-0 late into the second half until Freshman Megan Mills fought through the Arabian defense and GK to knot the score at 1-1 with less than 3 minutes remaining. The teams would play through two 7 minutes overtimes before heading into a Penalty shootout. Cassie Underwood and Megan Mills both made their shots and GK Sarah Downs turned away several Arabian shots before New Castle’s final shooter stepped up with the game on the line. Freshman Lauren Ayers did not disappoint burying a shot low in the corner just past the reach of the Pendleton GK to seal the victory for the Trojans. The Trojans received excellent play from freshman Abby Hamilton playing in the center defense for Cassie Underwood as the Trojans shuffled players to different positions with a number of players nursing injuries. The Trojans will return to action Saturday at Richmond.
