THORNAPPLE KELLOGG HIGH SCHOOL: 5
The Varsity Eagles hosted Middleville Thornapple-Kelloggsville (TK) on Wednesday night for the team's third match in six days. TK got on the board early in the first half as the Eagles were adjusting to some new positions and led the match 3-0 at the half. The Eagles conceded two more goals to TK in the first 15 minutes of the second half and faced a 5-0 deficit. The stubborn Eagles continued to press and find ways to create chances on goal, finally opening up scoring for the home side on a shot from junior Bryn Bonnema (66th minute) from outside that beat the TK keeper. The perseverance of the Eagles paid off when Emma VanGoor turned the corner on the TK defender and slotted home a shot just inside the far post with just 2 minutes left on the clock. The Eagles weren't done, however. Junior Kailynn Grieve dribbled the ball into the box and was fouled with 30 seconds left to earn a penalty kick which she converted to bring the Eagles within 2 goals in the waning seconds of the match.
