Sentinel Girls Rally Past Flathead Kickers
After a sluggish start the Missoula Sentinel girls' soccer team found its footing and rallied for a 2-1 win over Kalispell Flathead Tuesday in a Western AA match at Playfair Park.
The Bravettes (2-3) scored in the first minute and stayed in front until the 60th minute when Bri Olson scored the tying goal. Sentinel (3-1) notched the game-winner in the 73rd minute. Libby Walker made a slick pass to Lexi Steele at the top of the 6-yard box and she redirected it into the net.
"Obviously having them score in the first minute didn't set a good tone," Sentinel coach Keri Grasky said. "We took halftime to regroup and refocus on the things we weren't doing.
"They pulled it together as a team. They started talking, started making decisions out there, started stepping to the ball. We also changed up some positions and it worked."
