ALMEDIA -- Meadowbrook Christian won a lot of games this season, but none were likely as painful as Tuesday's victory over Line Mountain in an opening-round game of the District 4 Class A playoffs.
The Lions defeated the Eagles, 1-0, at Central Columbia H.S., but with the win came at a price as Meadowbrook lost two key starters.
Lost for the remainder of the season were senior captain Adrienne Yordy, a defender, plus sophomore Shanae Bomberger, an outside striker. One girl dislocated her ankle, while the other had some teeth knocked out in a collision with an opposing player.
"We lost two quality starters. It was a bittersweet win," said Meadowbrook coach Brian Elsasser. "We missed two penalty kicks and we had 14 direct kicks for various other fouls. It was a very physical game." Sarah Marks made three saves in the shutout for Meadowbrook (20-0-1), which plays the Bloomsburg-South Williamsport winner on Saturday at a site and time to be determined.
