Summerville Sports Teams Take on Sonora
January 17, 2018
After lots of back and forth from both team and with eight minutes on the clock, Maddie Mitchell assisted Grace Davis for the first goal of the game, putting Sonora up 1-0. The first half came to end with no more goals but a yellow card was given to Victoria Smith. Grace Davis scored again in the beginning of the second half creating a lead of 2-0.
However, with still twenty-three minutes left in the second half, Grace Davis was carried off the field with a severe leg cramp. Summerville continued to battle and midway through the half Morgan Wilkie made a crouching stop to kept Sonora from scoring.
Then Summerville lost another starter with 15 minutes left in the half as Shiloh Quincy was also carried off the field with bad calf cramping. Sydney Taylor replaced Quincy. Sonora scored their first goal with ten minutes left in the half making the score 2-1 Summerville. Quincy returned to the game with seven minutes left but Davis was still unable to walk.
With just four minutes left, one of Sonora’s key players Brenna Canepa was taken out of the game by a yellow card. She quickly returned to the game on a dead ball and Sonora tied the game up with two minutes left. The game ended in a tie.
