High school girls soccer: Stun and done

Danville girls eliminate Warrior Run

(Continued)

Danville got on the board in the first half with 10:21 to play when Kylie Gorki lined up for a direct kick about 20 yards deep and nailed a shot to her left that rolled past George for an 1-0 lead at the half.

"It's only a goal; you can come back," Allen said was her message to the Defenders at the half. "I think they showed that, they played until the end. They played hard, (and) they played tough."

Seniors Taylor Landis and Emily Potter both kept trying to work past the Ironmen's back line and take shots (including six from Landis), but any time they got a look, Harris stepped up to make a great save or the defense cleared the ball.

George came into the game late as a forward and had a great shot at Harris with about 4:10 to play. It would have made it a one-goal game, but Harris blocked it and a Danville player quickly cleared it.

"She (Harris) was on her game, phenomenal. She did a really nice job," Craig said. "Couple times there it looked like it was going in but the second effort kept it out. Once you have a solid goalie like that and they see she makes great saves, then the field players take over."

The Defenders defense didn't allow Danville to attempt a single shot from inside the goal box. The Ironmen routinely pressured Warrior Run's defense, though, rifling nine shots on goal.
