H.S. girls soccer: Warrior Run knocks off defending district champion Selinsgrove

(Continued)

Selinsgrove's best chance to score came with 33 minutes to play off a corner kick

The ball was nearly headed into the goal and bounced around a sea of white and blue jerseys just feet from the goal. A Seals player got her foot on it and sent a shot that looked as if it nearly went in as it hit the very top of the crossbar and caromed straight down.

The Defenders booted it away, though, and prevented what would have been a game-tying goal.

"I thought our defense played great; Madi Welliver played smart (in goal); and I thought they did the right things they needed to do to win the game," Allen said.

Selinsgrove freshman Sam Rodkey had a decent look with 21:45 to play when she took a pass just outside of the goal area. Her shot bounced off Welliver, who quickly fell on it and prevented a goal.

The Seals had five corner kicks in the first half alone, but couldn't convert any of them as the Defenders' back line played extremely solid and didn't allow anything to develop.
