Whitefish Bay soccer team knocks off top-ranked DSHA< 1-0 in double OT

May 16, 2014 10:25 p.m. | In the second half and throughout the first overtime, the Whitefish Bay girls soccer team had several great chances against top-ranked in state D1 polls DSHA Friday night

A shot was tipped away at the very last second by Dasher goalie Olivia Myszewski in the first overtime, and Bay even had a good look early in the second overtime, when Myszewski got caught out of position and a Bay player had a point blank shot only to have it knocked away by a fast moving defender.

Nothing would go in it seemed.

Until senior midfielder Leah Rothstein stepped to the leftside corner kick spot midway through the second OT and deftly knocked a high, looping shot towards the far upper right corner of the goal. Myszewski got her fingertips on it, but the ball slid just inside the post and down for the only goal in an important 1-0 nonconference victory.

"It was a tough game," said Rothstein. "We had a lot of shots. We just knew that eventually one of them had to go in. It felt good (when I kicked it)."
