Lincoln East girls soccer punches ticket to state tournament
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Late-game drama has been the theme of district soccer, and Thursday night’s District A-3 girls final between Lincoln East and Lincoln Southeast had plenty.
The Knights got out to an early 1-0 lead only 12 minutes into a match thanks to a goal from freshman Katie Childress.
Southeast goalkeeper Johanne Hagen kept East off the board until going down with a leg injury in the second half. She was unable to return to the match.
With just about 10 minutes remaining in the game, Lincoln East’s Page Monson tied it up 1-1 on a free kick.
Then just four minutes later, MaKynlie Cade scored the game-winning shot.
The Spartans won 2-1 to claim the district title and are headed to the state tournament.
