Play-in qualifier

Team Score
Penalty kicks 3-1

SANDY — The Corbett High girls soccer team put pressure on the Stayton goal throughout the second half, but couldn’t get a ball into the net until penalty-kick shootout.

The Cardinals converted three straight shots by Finn Moon, Kelsie Duncan and Chloe Ballard in the knockout stage, while Corbett goalie Kendall Sheerman made saves on Stayton’s first two attempts. The Cardinals closed out the victory when Stayton sent a must-make shot wide of the post.

“You only have half a second to react to the ball, but making that first block gave me the confidence that I could get to it,” Sheerman said.

The play-in qualifier victory lands Corbett a spot in the 4A state bracket in its first season as a member of the Tri-Valley Conference. The Cardinals (10-5-1) open the playoffs Tuesday at No. 5 Philomath (10-4-0).
