GIRLS SOCCER: Monday's roundup, CV Christian falls in overtime of first round of MDCC playoffs
CRESAPSTOWN, MD. >> Cumberland Valley Christian and Calvary Christian battled into overtime Monday afternoon in a first-round game of the Mason-Dixon Christian Conference girls soccer tournament.
Six minutes into the extra period, the Eagles' Chesni Ultis scored after a pass from Payton Emerick to hand CVC a tough loss and end their season with a 2-7 record.
"It was a great game all-around," Blazers coach Paul Lundy said. "We dominated play in the second half and beginning of overtime, but they were able to connect on a breakaway. I'm proud of my girls. They fought very hard and played their best game of the season.
"I hate to see it end, especially for our seniors, but if you're going to lose a soccer match it feels better knowing we played about as well as we could."
Emily Rice had her first start in goal for CV Christian and made nine saves.
"Emily played excellent in goal," Lundy said. "Bri Miley and Karlee Kipe anchored our defense and I was pleased with how freshman Sophie Bland developed all season as our sweeper."
