COLUMBIA CITY â€” 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.
â€śHuntington is a quick team,â€ť said Eagle Head Coach Stephanie Wiley, â€śWe 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 didnâ€™t know about.â€ť
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 Huntingtonâ€™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 Northâ€™s Aly Grabner gave the visitors a 2-0 lead at the 34:16 mark.
