McPHERSON, Kan.-Maize South scored with just under two minutes remaining in overtime to take a 2-1 win over Hays High in the semifinals of the McPherson Invitational Soccer Tournament. The two teams battled all night long in the cold and the wind.
Maize South scored the first goal of the game with only 37 seconds remaining in the first half and led 1-0 at halftime. The Lady Indians would take only 25 seconds of the second half to score the equalizer as Caroline Robben found an opening to score her third goal of the season. Both teams would have opportunities throughout the remainder of regulation but could not capitalize.
The Mavericks scored the game winner off of a free kick just outside of the goalie box, the result of what was a questionable foul call against Hays High. The Lady Indians will face Andover Central, a 2-1 loser to McPherson, in the 3rd Place game at 6pm on Friday.
