Archbold Defeats Ottawa Hills in Girls District Soccer Semis

Senior midfielder Natalee Rose scored two goals, the second one coming on a penalty kick with 2:41 left on the clock to break a 1-1 tie, and the Archbold Lady Blue Streaks defeated the Ottawa Hills Lady Green Bears 2-1 to advance to the DIII Girls District Championship game. Rose’s first score came on a free kick from about 40 yards away with just 11 seconds left in the first half that gave the Streaks a 1-0 lead at halftime.

The Green Bears pressured the Blue Streaks defense for much of the second half and finally broke through with a game-tying goal with a little more than ten minutes remaining which, ultimately, set the stage for Rose’s game winner. Archbold will now play the Ottawa-Glandorf Lady Titans, a 5-0 winner over the Swanton Lady Bulldogs in the night’s second contest, on Saturday, October 30th at 1:00 PM at Evergreen High School for the District title and a trip to the Regionals.
