Janesville Craig soccer falls in overtime
Morgan La Plante, recently named Wisconsin State Player of the Year, scored the winning goal unassisted at 82 minutes, 31 seconds. Craig finished 3-6 in the Big Eight.
It was a very tough game, very physical,” Craig coach Bill McCabe said. “We played right with them and we had our chances, but it just didn’t go.’’
Sarah Ziegler scored Craig’s goal with an assist from Chelsea Sheedy at 47:37 to tie the match. La Plante gave La Follette a 1-0 lead on a penalty kick at 20:11.
