ARLINGTON The Lady Eaglessoccer team lost one Wesco North league match and tied another Sept. 26 and 28.
Arlington was shutout 2-0 by the host Lady Bruins of Cascade Thursday, Sept. 28 and tied 4A rival M-P in a scoreless double overtime battle Tuesday, Sept. 26.
Junior goalkeeper Andrea Parlin was the goalie of record for both league battles.
The Lady Eagles dropped to 1-6-1 in division and overall after the Cascade defeat.
The Lady Eagles soccer team may have dropped from 4A to 3A in the Wesco North League, but that didnt stop them from playing M-P tough Tuesday, Sept. 26.
The geographical neighbors battled to a hard fought and physical 0-0 deadlock after two 5-minute sudden death overtime periods at John C. Larson Stadium.
Parlin played a great game defensively in the teams first official game of autumn.
With the tie, Arlington improved to 1-5-1 in league play and overall on the season.
The visiting Lady Tomahawks now stand at 2-4-1.
The teams were tied at the end of regulation and sophomore midfielder Amanda Wreggelsworth fired off one of the only shot attempts during the first 5-minute overtime period.
Sophomore defender Erin Taylor played an aggressive game for the Lady Eagles and seemed to be a magnet toward the penalty box area.
The teams played a physical and aggressive style of play throughout the contest with players falling all over the field, and combined with the ongoing tension of a scoreless game resulted in a combined five yellow cards issued.
Arlington received all but one of the warning cards which head coach Nathan Davis compared to being assessed a 15-yard penalty in football.
I think both teams played really hard, Davis said. I wasnt surprised by what we saw. Nobody had really good shots which is evident by the draw.
