Otters fall to section leader Cardinals 1-0Published 9:57am Friday, October 4, 2013
s Falls Otter girls soccer team fought a hard battle in its season finale, but the visiting Alexandria Cardinals were able to edge their host 1-0 Thursday night.
The first half saw both teams play to a stalemate as the two teams combined for four shots on goal.
The second half continued the struggle as neither team could make its mark on the scoreboard. The scoring drought finally broke midway through the half as Alexandria slipped the ball past Fergus goalie Sydney Kuehl to take the lead.
The Otters still had a chance to tie the game, but couldn’t find the back of the net as the Cardinals captured the win.
“We played a great full game tonight,” Otter coach Karoline Gustafson said. “I am proud of the effort the girls put forth, especially at the end creating the opportunities that they did. We have the opportunity to play these guys again if we play well and win on Thursday.”
Seniors Kuehl, Lauren Norgren and Sara Anderson were honored at half-time.
The Otters will now wait to find out who its opponent will be in the Section 8A Thursday.
