The Warsaw girls varsity soccer team used big second half to take down conference-foe Goshen 5-2. Warsaw started the game with several chances, but it was Goshen who struck first through a counter-attack to take the early lead. Abby Steffensmeier would tie the score three minutes later as Tes Berelsman found Steffensmeier for the team’s first goal. With three minutes remaining in the first half, Goshen was rewarded with a penalty kick after a Goshen shot deflected off the hand of a Warsaw defender. Goshen would finish the penalty and take a 2-1 lead into the break.
The second half was all Warsaw as they took control of the game. Steffensmeier was again involved, but this time she laid off what would have been a contested shot to find a wide-open Audrey Grimm, who slotted the ball into the side netting. Two minutes later, Freshman Rylee Burns would lay the ball off to Corissa Koontz, was able to beat the goalkeeper and give Warsaw a 3-2 lead. Corissa Koontz would score an insurance goal with thirteen minutes remaining off a corner kick from Freshman Zoe Bergen. With thirty-seconds on the clock, Steffensmeier would add her second goal of the game goal off an assist from Graciel Scholl. Jasmine Ochoa made four saves in goal for the Tigers, who move to 4-1-1 (3-0 NLC) on the season.
Warsaw returns to action Wednesday as they face last year’s state runner-up and 3A #5Homestead at 6:45pm.
