NCCS girls remain in first

(Continued)

Both teams battled through regulation and the first overtime without a score, as each defense played strong.

With just 45 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Shannon Farrell intercepted a clear-out pass and found King for the game-winner.

“We played well. I would say that in the first half we had a bit of an edge,” Keene coach Fred Hooper said. “They picked it up in the second half.

“It was a well played game by both teams, unfortunately we failed to clear the ball and it went out to Farrell who passed it to King, and she turned and rifled it into the near post.”

Madison Miller collected the shutout victory over the Orange, making nine saves. Tucker Geiger turned away eight shots in a losing effort.
