Girls' soccer seeking elusive second win

It was another difficult week for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team as the Panthers went goalless in their last three games and have now failed to score in nine of their 13 games this season.

A home game against Hutchinson on Tuesday, Sept. 29 was particularly heartbreaking for the Panthers. After more than 79-1/2 minutes of scoreless play, the Tigers tallied the breakthrough tally on a long arcing goal that soared into the GSL net with just 27 seconds remaining in regulation time.

GSL looked well on its way to a clean sweep at GFW, posting a 10-0 game in the first game before the hosts rallied for a 25-22 victory.
