Shelbyville High School
New Castle High School
The Lady Bears played their first conference match of the year Saturday morning @ New Castle High School.
After a thriller 2 halves of play and 2 OverTime periods, the Lady Trojans were able to put more penalty shots in the net, to secure the victory.
New Castle struck first, and early, in the first 5 minutes. 2 more goals were added on to give them a 3-0 lead.
Hannah Murray was able to put one in for the Bears late in the half, giving New Castle a 3-1 lead into halftime.
Not too far into the second half, Alondra Hernandez squeaked one in for Shelbyville after the ball bounced around in the box. New Castle then responded again, giving them a 4-2 lead.
Shelbyville was able to bounce back and tie the game from Murray’s two free kick goals going straight in the net; the last goal being with approximately 6min to go.
With the game tied after regulation and after two 7 minute scoreless periods of OverTime, we were headed to Penalties.
Both teams only scored 1 in the first five shooters. After 1 miss from each team; New Castle was able to score a Penalty, meaning Shelbyville must score as well. The shot was blocked and the game finally game to a close.
Outstanding Performances from the Bears included Hannah Murray, Laurel Eggleston, RaeAnne Scarlett, Alondra Hernandez, Michelle Gil, and Alexis Knose. Great game by all players!
Shelbyville will be off for a week, with the next game being 29Aug against Mt. Vernon.
