Marian Knights upset 6th Ranked Munster at Indian Invitational
The Marian knights recorded their fist win over the season in impressive fashion upsetting the 6th ranked Munster Mustangs 1-0. Munster finished the 2016 season with 18 wins and a game away from a state championship.
The first twenty minutes was very even with both sides creating opportunities. with 17 minutes remaining in the 1st half, Caroline Baughman crossed a ball that was handled by a Munster defender and the knights were awarded a penalty kick. Junior Megan Bullock calmly placed it in the corner to give the Knights the 1-0 lead.
Munster put on the pressure in the 2nd half creating chance after chance. Senior captain Hannah Harry-Shade came up big with 3 point blank saves too protect the lead. The knights had 3-4 nice counter attack chances to finish out the game.
Marian improved to 1-1-1 and will face #17 Valpo at 11:00 am on Saturday as well as a 4:30 match vs Lake Central.
