High School Soccer:
Lenape Keeps Pace with Overtime Victory

Every win counts but every lose has to sting a bit when your team is expected to come out on top of your division. For the Lady Indians from Lenape High School, the expectations are high and so far they haven’t disappointed anyone yet. With a scoreless first half, it would come down to the team that could demonstrate the ability to come up with the big plays. Both teams would do so as this Olympic Conference girl’s soccer game had to be decided in the overtime period. Lenape’s Jamie Kunkel long distance shot found its way into the net giving the Indians the 2-1 victory.

Lenape jumped out to the early advantage when Allison Williams scored the first goal of the game midway through the second half. With time ticking down, the Indians were doing everything they could to preserve their slim lead. But Camden Catholic’s Katie Gallagher tied the score and eventually sent this game into overtime. With seven minutes remaining in the extra period, Kunkel kept Lenape on top of their division keeping pace with Bishop Eustace in the standings.
