Cass girls play to draw with Bruins; Woodland teams edged at Kell
The Cass girls soccer team was blanked 7-0 by Northwest Whitfield last Spring, so the Lady Colonels had some motivation Wednesday night at home against the visiting Lady Bruins. Cass did not finish with a win, but finished the night in a 3-3 draw with the 5-1-1 Lady Bruins. Cass senior Logan Vermaas chased down the first pass of the night and found Michelle Escobar for a goal in the opening minute of the game. That lead held until the final two minutes of the first half when Northwest Whitfield scored to send the game to halftime tied 1-1. Fifteen minutes into the second half, Vermaas scored off a free kick from Maddie Shook to regain the lead at 2-1, but the visiting Lady Bruins scored the next two goals to take a 3-2 second half lead. Vermaas nailed a penalty kick in the final minute of the contest to lift the Lady Colonels to a 3-3 draw. The Cass boys were blanked by undefeated Northwest Whitfield in the nightcap, 6-0.
The Lady Colonels (2-4-1, 0-2) and Colonels (2-5, 0-2) return to Region 7-AAAAA action Friday at Woodland.
