Tuesday evening turned into a thriller at Tallman Beyrer Field as the Girls Soccer team hosted Mishawaka Marian. It was the first Northern Indiana Conference game for the Eagles of the season.
The game kept the fans energized as the two teams battled it out. Regulation was not enough for either team as the game went to overtime and eventually into a shootout.
Anna Borkowski put Adams up on the board first in the 7th minute, scoring on a free kick from the top of the 18. Just a few minutes later Borkowski scored yet again, this time on a penalty kick.
Adams enjoyed the lead throughout the rest of the first half.
In the second period however, Marian was able to work their way back into the game, despite the best efforts of the outstanding Eagles defense and goalkeeper. At the end of regulation, the two teams were tied 2-2.
Neither team was able to score in either of the two overtime periods, taking the game into a shootout.
With the game on the line, Adams goalkeeper Makiah McCain had two major saves for the Eagles, preventing the Knights from winning.
Borkowski, Anna Rosato, Alexis Wilour, and Hannah Church all scored for Adams in the shootout.
With the shootout, the Lady Eagles were victorious 3-2.
Besides the two saves in the shootout, McCain had 7 saves in the game, helping to secure the Eagles victory.
The Adams offense had a total of 12 shots on the Knights goal.
The win was a much needed victory for Adams, with the record for the team now being 2-3-2 overall and 1-0 in the NIC.
The Eagles will play again in NIC action, this time on Thursday as they travel to Jackson Field to take on the SB Riley Wildcats.
