High School

St. Ursula, Walsh Jesuit face off

TIFFIN, Ohio --St. Ursula did what most Ohio high school soccer followers thought was impossible Wednesday night.

The Arrows stayed in a scoreless tie with Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit, the nation's second-ranked girls prep team through 80 minutes of regulation play, plus two 15-minute overtime periods.

Underdog St. Ursula then beat the Warriors (19-1-2) in the second round of penalty kicks to take a 1-0 upset victory in the Division I state semifinal played at Tiffin Columbian's Frost-Kalnow Stadium.

Knotted 3-3 after the first round of five penalty kicks for each team, Arrows senior midfielder Kiley Armstrong scored as the second shooter in the second round, and Walsh's Sandra Yu sailed her try over the crossbar to give St. Ursula (15-6-1) the sudden-death win.

The other hero for the Arrows was senior goalkeeper Nicole Vahalik, who made 14 saves in regulation play and the overtimes, then made two saves during the penalty-kick phase.
