Pressure Kicks Seal Senior Championship 05.19.06
As Panther fans counted down the minutes of the second half of the KASSAA Senior Girls Championship contest the KC Blues were swarming the RND net pressing for an equalizing goal. With the strong wind at their backs in the first half, RND jumped out to a 2 -1 halftime lead. In the second frame the Panthers were thwarting the KC attack until a last minute KC score and then a scoreless overtime pushed the game into the dreaded penalty kick shootout. As she had the entire second half and extra time, RND keeper Alex Howard stood tall stopping 2 penalties while the Panthers notched four consecutive penalty kick goals to capture a thrilling victory. All the Panthers showed true Garnet and Gold spirit battling a talented opponent and a strong wind with a gritty performance. Ellissa Riel returned from an early second half injury to captain the squad through the extra time and then drill home the opening penalty kick to give RND an advantage they would not let go of. The strength of the RND defense in challenging the Blues and clearing the ball against the wind was coupled with the tireless efforts of the RND mid-fielders and forwards.
