The Barlow girls soccer team held off a scare during a wild five-minute stretch of the second half to down David Douglas 3-1 Thursday night and secure a spot into the 6A playoff bracket.

Barlow was clinging to a 1-0 lead as the intensity ramped up midway through the second half, expressing itself when the referee issued three yellow cards in quick succession — one against the sideline for delay of the game.

Barlow’s Keely Fetters seemed to defuse the situation when she split a defender and the goalie to boot the ball into an empty net for a 2-0 lead with 19:57 to play.

But David Douglas didn’t let down.

Less than a minute later, the Scots converted a penalty kick to get back within striking distance. Twenty seconds later, David Douglas was attacking the goal once more with Brittany Beach and Lacey Jones working a give-and-go that forced Barlow goalie Alex Qualls to scoop up a difficult one-hopper at the post.

Fetters would eventually decide the contest with her second goal of the night coming with three minutes to play.

The Bruins (3-1-3) leapfrogged Central Catholic to finish third in the final Mount Hood Conference standings. The Rams lost 1-0 to Gresham on Thursday.
