Lady Knights lose a heartbreaker

May 1, 2003

The Deerfield-Windsor Lady Knights will not be returning to the GISA soccer semifinals.

Westminster School of Augusta outshoots the Lady Knights 3-1 in penalty kicks after the two teams played to a 3-3 tie after regulation and two ten-minute overtime periods.

The Lady Knights believed there should have never been an overtime when they had a goal disallowed on an interference call late in the second half.

The score was tied after regulation 1-1 and the two squads then played two ten-minute overtime periods.

The Wildcats took the lead in the first overtime on a goal by Charlotte Boyd.

But moments later, Callie Hughey evened the score with her second goal of the game.

Deerfield-Windsor's chances of victory looked bleak after Westminster's Margaret Houston scored in the second ten minute period.

But Mary Hotz's rainbow kick sailed over the hands of the Wildcats goalkeeper and into the goal to the tie score again setting up the penalty kick shootout.

Westminster scored three goals on their first four kicks while only Mary Hotz could beat Westminster's Margaret Houston who served as the Wildcats keeper during the shootout.

Deerfield-Windsor finishes the season 14-5 and were champions of region 3-AAA.
