Lady Tigers win a thriller in sectional finals

 

LAWRENCEBURG – Two of the state’s top 10 teams met Saturday afternoon to determine the Class A, Sectional No. 44 soccer title.

The host Lawrenceburg Lady Tigers and Oldenburg Academy Twisters battled to the very end. The end result was a 2-1 win for the Lady Tigers.

The Lady Twisters got out to a fast start and controlled the tempo much of the first half.

Senior Gretchen Wilder gave Oldenburg a lead with a goal at the 22:59 mark.

The two teams jockeyed for field position over the next 20 minutes as the Lady Tigers seemed to be gaining some momentum. Haley Sutton tied the game at 1-1 with a goal at the 1:51 mark.  Alex Gilb was credited with the assist.

The first half ended all square.

The second half got underway and the Lady Tigers were on the attack. They pressured OA for nearly 28 minutes, but the Lady Twisters battled and did not relinquish a goal.

The momentum began to shift near the 12 minute mark and it was the Lady Twisters with a noticeable edge. Like the Lady Twisters, Lawrenceburg’s defense bent, but did not break.

Regulation time ended and the score was still knotted at 1-1.

Two seven minute overtime sessions passed and still no advantage was gained.

Whether it is the right or wrong way to determine a winner, the two teams went to a penalty kick shootout. Five players from each team and the respective goalies take center stage.

Sutton opened the PK phase and scored for the Lady Tigers. Oldenburg senior Hannah Hanauer answered for the Lady Twisters. After a nice save by OA goalie Ella Lamping, the Lady Twisters took the lead as Kirsten Ricke found the back of the net. Goals by Autumn Magee and Gretchen Wilder made it 3-2. Haley Lowe tied it at 3-3, but the Lady Twisters needed to connect on one of their final two to insure a tie and second round of penalty kicks. Oldenburg failed to hit on its fourth attempt and a goal by Jackie Zerbe gave Lawrenceburg a 4-3 advantage. The final attempt by the Lady Twisters slid just outside the right post.

The playing field turned to one of mixed emotions. The Lady Tigers celebrating a thrilling victory and the Lady Twisters huddled together consoling each other after a disappointing defeat.

It was the second meeting between the two teams. Oldenburg won the first meeting, but the two teams were obviously evenly match.

The Lady Tigers will now host Bishop Chatard on Saturday to determine a regional champion.
