Bruins break through in second half
6A GIRLS SOCCER
Mount Hood Conference
The Barlow girls soccer team launched a steady attack at the Centennial goal Wednesday night, breaking through with a flood of goals in the second half to score a 3-1 comeback win over the Eagles.
The Bruins pulled even shortly after intermission after Alli Heckmann hustled to save a ball along the end line, eventually resulting in a throw-in deep in the Centennial end. That throw bounced into a crowd on the left edge of the 18-yard box where Barlow's Kiki Kjeldsen put on some fancy footwork to find space amidst a crowd of white shirts. She got off a waist-high shot that found the net from 15 yards out.
About five minutes later, the Bruins netted the winning goal when Keely Fetters curved a corner kick toward the far post, and Hannah Rispler deflected it in with her feet.
Oregon City holds a one-point edge over Central Catholic and Barlow in the MHC title chase heading into the final week of the regular season. The Bruins (10-1-1) host rival Gresham on Tuesday before finishing at Delta Park against Central Catholic on Thursday.
Our goal is to take first place, and to do that we need wins in our remaining games, Fetters said.
