BC girls soccer knocks of Liberty

Sixteen saves for Bethlehem Catholic goalkeeper Caitlin Vogrins against Liberty last week held the Hurricanes as the Hawks won in double overtime, 3-2, at Becahi.

“It was brutal. Their shots were amazing, and it was hard to get set up and block them, but I found a way to do it,” Vogrins said. “When it went in the net, it was the best feeling in the world.”

Becahi forward Brooke Bisko saw to that, kicking the game winner with just a couple of minutes left in the second overtime.

Bisko scored earlier in the game for the Hawks on an assist by Teighan Boyle.

The Hurricanes took the lead with two goals by Merve Okumus, but Becahi’s Emma Pfeiffer tied the game.

“I was running down the sideline, I passed it to Brooke from about a little over half field, and she passed it back to me, and I just went with it, and left foot, kicked it,” Pfeiffer said. “Since we lost to them the first time this season, we thought, that was our first game, and we’re playing better together as a team, so we thought we had it this time.”

The Hawks did have it, but not without their share of heart-stopping moments.

“It was awful,” said Vogrins, “but I knew I didn’t want to let any goal go past me. I couldn’t let my team down like that, and I could feel my heart beat 20 minutes after the game ended.”

Liberty goalie Bridget MacDonald also had double-digit saves, 12 in all.

Later in the week, the Hurricanes defeated Easton, 1-0, with 10:25 left in regulation.

Kathryn Wescoe scored on an assist by Okumus, and MacDonald had 21 saves against the Red Rovers.
