Columbus Girls Soccer falls short of 1A Title game


It's the semifinal round at the 1A Girls State Soccer tournament in Muscatine and the unbeaten Waterloo Columbus Sailors continue their pursuit of a state championship.

Today the high scoring Sailors face perhaps their toughest test of the season against Sioux City Bishop Heelan.

The Sailors had their sights set on a title, but trailed 1-0 in the second half.

Ashlee Sinnott knocks one in on a header to tie it at 1 apiece.

Heelan would counter. Megan Glover finds the back of the net as the Crusaders take a 2-1 lead.

But a penalty gives Columbus new life as Kate Letkiewicz delivers... It's 2-2 tie.

That would soon become a Columbus lead on an own goal  3- 2 Sailors, but a late Heelan goal with 2 seconds to play forces overtime.

And in the extra session, Makayla Wessling drives home the winner. Columbus season ends with a heartbreaking 4-3 loss.
