Lady Goats lose close game to Kodiaks


CHELAN - Tuesday evening (Oct. 5) the Goats traveled to the ever-formidable Cascade Kodiaks, the Goats second game in as many days, to finish out the first round of play in the CTL. Going into the game we knew it was going to be a hard-fought and physical battle from the beginning of the match. We knew we needed to play our game and connect passes to secure the victory.

During the first half the game was fairly even in play.  Fouls were being called for both sides. Ultimately, one fall was called in our favor and lead to a penalty kick. Unfortunately, for us the keeper for Cascade made a great save and we were not able to capitalize on the rebound.
Going into the second half still with a zero-zero tie we tried to slow the game down more and play our game.  We were much better at controlling the ball and keeping the ball on the ground.  Thanks to our team play we were able to create multiple opportunities, many of which were inches away from bouncing in our favor.
At the end of regulation, we were still tied zero-zero and went into two five-minute overtimes.  Chances on both ends were had, however we could not find the back of the net.  This led into a shootout, which allots each team 5 shooters each.  We were able to connect with three out of our five girls hammering the ball in the back of the net.  Unfortunately, the Kodiaks were able to slide one more past Aliyah Finch to secure them the 1-0 (4-3 Shootout) victory.  
This was the closest game that Chelan has ever played against the Kodiaks.  Fortunately, we will have a few well-deserved days of rest before we return to the field at home against the Kodiaks on Tuesday, October 12.  This will not be a game that anyone will want to miss.  We know what we need to work on and we will be coming back to garner our victory.
