DODGE CITY, Kan.-80 minutes of soccer just wasn’t enough for the Hays High Lady Indians as they travelled to Dodge City for their Western Athletic Conference opener on Tuesday. Hays faced a very defensive minded Red Demons team who packed at least 7 players in the box most of the night.
The Lady Indians had scoring opportunities in regulation but couldn’t convert on a penalty kick and free kicks outside the box. The game went to overtime and with 2:16 left a Dodge City penalty gave Hays High their second penalty kick of the game. Maggie Robben took the kick and found the back of the net to give the Lady Indians the 1-0 golden goal victory.
Hays improves to 4-1 on the season and 1-0 in WAC. They will be back home on Thursday to host Liberal with a 4pm start at Hays High.
