Girls soccer wins Sectional thriller over Center Grove

     October 8, 2021 - The seventh-ranked Columbus North girls soccer team was without two starters due to injury and facing eighth-ranked Center Grove (10-2-6) on their home field.  Odds were certainly not stacked in their favor.  Nevertheless, the Bull Dogs (14-1-2) prevailed 2-1 after winning Penalty Kicks 4-2 to advance to the Sectional Championship on Saturday, October 9.

     The Trojans took a 1-0 lead into halftime, but Lauren Barker put the Dogs on the board with a goal in the second half to knot the score at one apiece.  Regulation ended with the 1-1 tie, as did the two overtime periods.  The game was decided on Penalty Kicks, with the Bull Dogs won 4-2, with goalkeeper Mal Gilley recording two saves.  Barker, KJ Ely, Emily Ellis, and Rion Stevens all sent their penalty kicks past Center Grove's keeper and into the back of the net, earning the Bull Dogs the victory and a trip to the Sectional Championship against Columbus East.  East earned their way into the Finals with a 4-1 victory over Whiteland in the nightcap.  The Bull Dogs defeated Columbus East 2-0 in their August 25th matchup.

     Game time for Saturday’s match is 7:00 pm at Center Grove.  Tickets can be purchased for $6 at the gate or electronically by clicking HERE
