Bluestone, Park View soccer girls play to 4-4 tie

SoVaNow.com / May 05, 2021
Playing with a shortened roster of only 10 players, the Bluestone girls varsity soccer team traveled to South Hill on Friday to take on rival Park View and ended the match in a 4-4 tie.

Bluestone moved out to the 1-0 score when Emma Riegert scored a goal at the four minute mark. Reigert posted an additional goal three minutes later for the 2-0 lead.

Park View picked up two quick scores at the 17 and 21st minute marks. The teams were tied 2-2 going to the break.

“Our 10 squad team took on Park View who chose to play with 11 players,” Bluestone coach Thomas Wells said. “We played very well despite this obstacle.”

Bluestone posted the first two goals of the second half on a penalty kick by Riegert and an Ella Beatty goal to move out in front, 4-2.

Following this series Bluestone again had a player out which took the team down to nine on the field.

Park View wasted no time in taking advantage, scoring two goals to tie the match at 4-4. After two OT periods and no further goals, the match ended 4-4.

“Jakaylah Degree played a great game in goal with 11 saves,” Wells said. “I was very happy with the way the way our ladies played and kept up good spirits when facing tough odds.”

Monday’s match with Park View at Bluestone was postponed due to weather and will be played May 10.
