The Hastings College women’s soccer team, the number 2 seed, took on the number 7 seeded Doane Tigers in the quarterfinals of the GPAC Conference Tournament at Lloyd Wilson Field on Thurs. Nov. 7.
Hastings defender Madison Boettcher kept a strong hold and base to the defensive line as both teams started the game. Both Hastings and Doane started off strong and would not let down for the first 15 minutes.
There where numerous battles during the game, but Kelsey Nealon was the first to capitalize on an opportunity, assisted by her teammate Kelly Poland. She scored 15 minutes into the first half, leaving the half at 1-0.
The Broncos kicked off for the second half, and just like they left the first half, the girls came back fighting. After 30 minutes, Maddy Paskevic finally got the goal she was looking for.
Assisted by Amanda Olson, Maddy took a shoot, and the ball went right through the Doane goalkeeper’s gloves, putting the score at 2-0.
Two minutes after Hastings’ second goal, a Doane player was injured while play was in Bronco goal box, stopping the game. Doane took advantage of the stall in action, intercepting the ball after Brittany Toth’s kick into midfield, with Courtney Richards putting one into the goal for the Tigers making the score 2-1.
Eight minutes later, Maddie Michalek scored the final goal of the game, as the Broncos knocked out Doane from the GPAC tournament by a final score of 3-1.
The Hastings women’s soccer team will continue in the conference tournament as they face Concordia on Tues., Nov. 12 at 6:00 at Lloyd Wilson Field.
