Cascade rallies to send Knights to 0-2

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Northview's Carlee Bell (No. 4)_works her way around Cascade's Katie Holt in first half play on Tuesday night. The Cadets would go on to pick up a 3-2 win.
Leading by a goal at halftime as rain began to fall and lightning entered the area, the Northview girls' soccer team had built some confidence in their play over the first half. But visiting Cascade had some other plans in the second period of action.

The Knights took a two-goal lead following a score by Jenny Woodcox on an assist by Tylee Graverson, but Cascade never let up.

The Cadets rallied to score three unanswered goals, the final one with three minutes remaining to pick up a 3-2 win that dropped Northview to 0-2 on the young season.

"We're disappointed," commented coach Tony Alstott. "I think we're all trying to figure out what to do next. If this becomes a trend we'll find ourselves 0-5."

Northview played strongly in the first, scoring at the 29:08 mark when Abby Birkey sent a long free kick just under the Cascade crossbar for an early lead. In fact, the Knights had several quality chances but again, couldn't catch the necessary breaks to capitalize on some hard shots right at the Cadets' keeper, Michele Morris.

Carlee Bell had a strong shot on net off a Woodcox pass that was sent right at the keeper. Woodcox also took a good shot from a Graverson feed that was stopped as well.

Northview displayed some good combo work in the offensive end from Lindsay Woodox, Bell, Christina Arvin and Graverson as well.

The Knights just weren't able to find the net to break open a tight affair.

Rain began to fall late in the first half and play was stopped momentarily during halfitme as the inclement weather passed.

Cascade made the most of their own chances after the break to cash in on the victory.

Despite the one goal loss, Alstott found some positives in his team's play.

"Tylee (Graverson) stepped on a piece of glass over the weekend but she came out and played superbly. I think she deserves a tip of the hat for her play."

"Abby (Birkey) played a solid game for us in the midfield and Cayla Yockey did a great job at sweeper for us."

Dropping to 0-2, the Knights will host West Vigo in their Western Indiana Conference opener on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
