WC loses on PKs at sectional

SULLIVAN — Washington Catholic’s girls soccer team gave North Knox all they could handle, but the Warriors prevailed at the Sullivan Class A girls sectional, 2-1, on penalty kicks.

North Knox will take on South Knox in the final as the Warriors won on penalty kicks, 4-3. The Cardinals made its first three penalty kicks, and keeper Sydney Dunbar had caught a Warrior kick, but the final two WC kickers, Christina Smith and Macy Kane, had agonizing misses to tip the game to North Knox.

The Cardinals would be first on the scoreboard from a beautiful bending shot from senior Elizabeth Perkins that confused Warriors keeper Alivia Held and found the top corner. The score from the fourth minute would hold until late.

North Knox equalized late in the 31st minute when a long shot from Elysa Moreland bounced off Dunbar’s hands and into the net. WC would threaten late in the half on successive corner kicks in the last minute and continued the attack early in the second half with shots from Perkins and Lauren Mathies, but both would just curl away from the NK net.

WC assistant coach Jeff Williams said. Head coach Kelly Neace was unavailable for comment as she had to tend to an injured player.

“We felt like it was all we could ask for,” Williams said. “When you look back on it, it was a lot of missed opportunities. I think we outshot them. We just didn’t capitalize on the opportunities we had.”

Seniors Morgan Smith and Vibeke Salmelid controlled the WC midfield, looking for those opportunities but freshman Michelle Dinkins and the NK defense held until the 16th minute when Salmelid had a run on Held but couldn’t capitalize. A few minutes later, Kane had a shot but curled wide. That was most of the attack in the second as Perkins was double-marked for most of the half.
