After allowing the Lady Bison to score an early goal, the Fillies got to work and took care of business (Sami Heimer scored a hat trick), although let up some in the end.
On the first tee of the children's PGA tour...and we got ourselves a regular. She will be turning pro before you know it. Might need a little work on the putting game...but who doesn't?
#1 Cody at #5 Buffalo...first half...Buffalo wearing the white...and trying to strike early...Teneil Schumacher had a 50-50 chance on that shot, but Raven Johnson read it right and reacted just in time to deflect the ball away...and things were just getting started. There was more to come.
A few minutes later...here it comes...Rileigh Olson has a break-away and she is off to the races...she slowed up briefly...just long enough to confuse Johnson and the far side of the net was open...the junior knocks the ball in...we've only played about 7 minutes...and the Lady Bison are up 1-nothing.
Cody did not take long to answer back...and this highlight is quick...we almost missed it...Sami Heimer is going to take the high road and squeeze the ball in under the crossbar for an equalizer...this game is off to a good start...we're tied at 1.
Later...less then 1 minute to go before the break...Heimer with a free kick for the Fillies...this is roughly 40 yards or so...and that ball is going in. The junior put just enough on that shot to get it over the defenders...and in between the the goal-post and the goalie...that's pretty good. The score was 2-to-1, going into halftime.
Second half...the visitors were still on the attack...this is Hannah Bailey...a freshman...she will elude one defender and make a contribution for the cause...so far she's one of the leading scorers in the state...her count is up to 6...and now she has her team ahead, by a score of 3-to-1.
There were still plenty of time to tack on another insurance goal...Heimer was looking for the hat trick...this shot hits a Lady Bison defender and goes off the goalie's finger-tips and she's got it...that's goal number 6 for her as well...and Cody is in command of this one...up 4-to-1.
The girls did admit after that...they slacked off some in the final 20 minutes...and Buffalo tried to cash in on what they could...Olson would slip her second one in on another fast-break...but her team was still 2 goals short...as the Fillies would double-up their opponents...4-to-2.
