A strong defensive effort and Halle Hill’s overtime goal helped the Lee’s Summit North girls soccer team upend No. 5-ranked St. Teresa’s Academy 2-1 Tuesday.
Halfway through the second overtime, North’s Jayme Coon got to a long throw-in by Halli Martin and hit a cross that was blocked. Coon, though, won the ball back and laid it back to Hill, who hit a one-time shot that curled into the far side of the net for the sudden death winner.
Mikayla Lampe gave the Broncos (4-7) the early 1-0 lead with a steal and shot past the St. Teresa’s goalkeeper in the fifth minute.
“The early goal gave us confidence and we used that to fight on the defensive side of the ball,” North coach Ryan Kelley said. “St. Teresa’s was able to turn the tide of the match and they quickly took control. Our back line held tough and made it tough for them to break through. In goal, Morgan Glasgow came up big coming off her line to win the ball and winning any ball played around the goal.”
The Stars (6-4) tied it with about five minutes left in regulation off a corner kick to send it into overtime.
