The Sturgeon Bay Clippers Girls Soccer team traveled to Baileys Harbor on Thursday night, and after a slight delay due to lightning in the area, the girls picked up the win.
It was an exciting first half, and the Sevastopol/Gibraltar Vikineers had opportunities in the first half, including a penalty kick after a foul occurred just inside the 18-yard box. The PK ended up going just high of the goal. After a few halftime adjustments, the Clippers came out strong in the second half and were able to grab the go-ahead goal in the 63rd minute. Emma Reichel had the game's only goal, which was enough for Clippers to leave Bailey's Harbor with the victory. Last night was Parent's night for the Vikineers.
The next broadcast of Sturgeon Bay Clippers soccer is scheduled for Tuesday against Kiel. The Clippers will play against Xavier Friday night at 6:30 p.m. Playing in the Bay Conference, Xavier is 4-5-5 on the season. They broke a five-math winless streak with an 11-1 victory over New London their last time out.
In the area's other game Thursday, Luxemburg-Casco's match against Marinette was canceled due to weather.
