United we Stand… United we Fall. So the great 2018 season came to an end Saturday afternoon, when the Adams Highlanders of Rochester outlasted the pressures that the Girls Varsity team had to offer on that given day. It was a tight game all the way to the end. The game was still tied at 0-0 at the end of regulation time.
For high school soccer, when overtime is played, there are two 10 minute OT periods, regardless of scoring. That’s unfortunate for the Eagles, as IKE drew first blood with Meike Ingles scoring in the first OT session. The Lady Eagles headed into the second OT session up 1-0. Adams was able to net the tying goal in the second session. That’s how the scoring would end, through Overtime, 1-1, forcing a Penalty Kick Shootout. Adams won the PK Shootout battle to advance to the Regional semi-finals, ending IKE’s glorious season.
The Eagles have NOTHING to be ashamed of, finishing as the reigning MAC Red Champs (for the 9th straight year) at 7-0-1, an overall regular season record of 15-1-3, and 2-1 in the state playoffs. Congratulations on a well played season! Seniors, thank you for your contributions to the team and good luck in whatever lies ahead for you!
