Cedar Rapids Kennedy rallies for 3A soccer title

Posted:

For more than 60 minutes, it looked as if Cedar Rapids Kennedy would finish the season as the state runner up.  Two goals in the final 20 minutes, however, catapulted the Cougars past Ankeny for a 2-1 win and a 3A state title.

Sydney Hedrick opened the scoring with a first half goal for Ankeny.  That lead held up until the 62nd minute when Kennedy's Kaela Dickermann picked up a loose ball in the box sending it to the back of the net.  Less than a minute later, teammate Hannah Palomo scored on a breakaway on what would end up being the game winner.

The title was the 2nd in school history for Cedar Rapids Kennedy.
