It was an uphill battle for the Huskies against Park Hill, as they went down 2-0 early in the first half. The girls settled in and started stringing together passes. Midway through the first half Megan Yates burst through the Park Hill defense and crossed the ball to a sprinting Isabelle De Buyl who quickly dropped the ball back to Abby Hofmann for a beautiful combination goal. Late in the half the girls equaled the score as De Buyl once again broke through the Park Hill defense and crossed the ball to Megan Yates who drove the ball into the corner of the net. The second half went back and forth, but both teams struggled to create scoring opportunities. The game ended in a 2-2 tie, and went to immediate penalty kicks. The Huskies placed and Sian-Nimu Karani goal, and Abby Hofmann, Liz Backer, Carly Gagnon, Alex Buehler, and Emily Peterson to take the kicks. PK’s proved to be an event in itself, as Nimu put on an absolute show in goal. She stopped 2-4 Park Hill penalty kicks in resounding fashion. All NW shooters made their penalty kicks and the Huskies won 4-2 in penalties. With that win they took 3rd place in the Mo-Kan Tournament. Three NW Huskies made the All-Tournament team. Congratulations to Abby Hofmann, Liz Backer, and Sian-Nimu Karani.
