The playoffs are getting real for West Henderson. After two dominating wins last week, the Falcons played in a much closer game Tuesday as they faced North Davidson in the Third Round of the NCHSAA 3-A Playoffs.
Yet the Falcons showed the entire game that they were the better team. Aside from a break-away sprint goal the Black Knights got in the first half, the entire game was controlled by the Falcons. Despite their dominance, the work of North Davidson’s goalie was simply incredible. Madison Musgrave made save-after-save, and had a goal kick that would make any football team jealous.
Musgrave’s incredible play was stymied by an incredible header late in the second half. Catherine Barton took a header on a pass from Marianne Maxon corner kick in an incredibly dramatic goal to tie the game up 1-1. This goal breathed life into the Falcons, and the girls played with a renewed confidence. Moments later, Marianne Maxon, padded her post-season goal count with the go-ahead goal — a laser-driven boot from the sideline into the far-corner of the goal just out of the Keeper’s previous incredible reach.
This game was everything you could ask for in a sporting contest.
Congratulations to the Falcons, and good luck Friday night as you travel to South Point for a chance to play in the Final Four on Tuesday. The entire community are so proud of you, and wish you all the best in your next games!
