Lady Eagles fall to Huntington North

COLUMBIA CITY — The Columbia City Lady Eagle Soccer team played host Wednesday night to a quick Huntington North squad as they looked to pick up their third win of the season. After a very close first half, the visiting Lady Vikings put in three second-half goals to take a 4-0 win at the Max Gandy Athletic Field.“Huntington is a quick team,” said Eagle Head Coach Stephanie Wiley, “We knew that going in, and I knew which players we had to keep an eye on. I think we did a pretty good job of marking the people we needed to. I think the ones that got the goals were people that we didn’t know about.”The first of those goals came at the 18:07 mark of the first half off a Lady Viking corner kick. The kick went long over a throng of players and was knocked in off the backside by Huntington’s Bailey Martin to give the Lady Vikings a 1-0 lead at halftime.A great deal of the second half was played in the Columbia City end with the exception of a few good offensive rushes by the Lady Eagles. A long free kick from straight out in front of the Eagle goal by Huntington North’s Aly Grabner gave the visitors a 2-0 lead at the 34:16 mark.To read the rest of this story, see the Sept. 5 issue of The Post and Mail.
