Overtime goal sends women's soccer to district finals


The Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team propelled into the District B finals by a goal scored in the second half of extra time to beat Hutchinson Community College 2–1 on their home field in Hutchinson, Kan., on Nov. 4.

Sophomore Midfielder Shino Kunisawa scored the goal in the dying moments of extra time to secure the Golden Eagles a spot in the finals against the winner of an upcoming Butler Community College/Northern Idaho College match.

The Golden Eagles took the lead midway through the first half of regular time because of a shot by Junko Honda into the top corner of the goal. The Blue Dragons equalized in the second half, and the match remained level until extra time.

The Golden Eagles will play again Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. Live streaming of the game is available from the Hutchinson Community College sports website www.bluedragonsports.com
