Wakefield Defeats North Cross 4-1
Wakefield bounced back from a heart-breaking loss to Seton in the third overtime in the DAC Final to defeat a stuborn, plucky North Cross team. North Cross traveled from Raleigh to take on the Fighting Owls in the VISSA State Quarterfinals on Bohn Field on Tuesday, May 12, 2009. Diane again led the Owl scoring attack with two typical Legette Lasers. Her first goal came 4 minutes into the game on a beautiful strike from the top of the penalty. The North Cross keeper had no chance. North Cross tied the score on a free kick after an un-necessary Owl foul late in the first half. Catherine was surprized by a deflection and the game was tied 1-1.
Demee came through big time early in the second half with the most creative goal of the season. From out of nowhere she popped the ball over the North Cross keeper and into the net for a 2-1 Owl lead. Diane netted her second of the day with a sliding gritty stike that opened a 3-1 lead. The Owls then dominated play and possession for the rest of the game. Deep midfielder Jordan joined the scoring parade with a nice strike for the final margin of 4-1.
The Owls next play Tandem Friends in Richmond on Friday afternoon at 5PM at St. Catherine's School. Tandem Friends promises to be a tough opponent off their early performance against Wakefield and their magnificent upset of Eastern Mennonite on Tuesday. We are going to try to broadcast the game live over Internet Radio but that may not prove doable. Check back for further details tomorrow.
