  • 0

EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) - It'll be number two against number one this week as the Memorial Abes women's soccer team edged Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School in overtime, 4-3 on Saturday.

The first goal came off a set piece by the Abes' Mikkyla Worthing.

Ten minutes into the second half, Rapids Ella Bruns crossed it to the middle and Ashley Abbott picked up the rebound to put Rapids on the board.

Rapids tied it up with two minutes to spare in regulation as Logan Vollert hit the back of the net.

Memorial sealed the victory in double overtime.

"Rapids came back, hungry, ready to play and they earned that 2-0 to tie it up.. We had a chat. We decided we are not ready to be done and we worked hard to come back and earn those two goals," said Olivia Hanson, Abes head coach.

Memorial will play top seed Hudson Thursday in the sectional semifinals. A time has yet to be decided.

Regis/McDonell advanced to the sectional tournament on Thursday after its 8-1 late-night win against Spooner on Saturday. Early goals were scored by Colleen Callaghan and Annabelle Schroeder put Regis/McDonell on top. The team will go on to play Washburn/Bayfield on Thursday.
