The Kane wolves girls soccer team picked up a big win Wednesday with an exciting overtime victory of St. Marys. The visiting team got on the board quickly with just over four minutes into the game Holly Shields scored unassisted. Then with only four minutes again Shields had an assist to Shannon Bridges to put the Lady Dutch ahead 2-0.
The Lady Wolves found themselves on their heals in the first half. Then with 25:51 left in the game Kelsey Johnson got a pass from Chanda Paup and put Kane on the scoreboard. In just 10 seconds the Lady Wolves were able to take control of the ball and Dawn Saquin found Taylor Bucheit who tied the score at 2-2. Both teams would exchange shots on goal but were unable to penetrate the goalie. The game then would go into overtime.
The crowd was a little concerned as the home team had to defend the worse part of the field. That didn't seem to make any difference in the girls as they kept the pressure on and with only six minutes left in the first sudden death period Paup made a nice pass to a streaking Bucheit who put in the winning goal.
"The girls had a difficult time playing on today's field, but, it didn't shut them down," said Kane head girls soccer coach Allie Saquin. "Some of our shots on goal were limited, but, we told the girls to just keep taking them.
