Koch Sisters Combine for Game-Winner; Sauerwein Saves

Nolan Soccer play-by-play analyst Chris Blake called all the action tonight as the match was broadcast LIVE on JATOTV. Paschal scored first and held the lead for 72 minutes until the Lady Vikings answered and answered again. They finally made their 15 to 3 shot advantage count. Emily Baker scored her 3rd goal of the season which is a career high for the senior, center back. She scored off the Lady Vikings 12th corner kick of the night, which was a season high.

Baker evened the game at 1 in the 72nd minute and then just 4 minutes later the Koch sisters combined for the game winner.

Older sister, Makenzie, found a gap in the Paschal back line right where younger sister, Katlynn isolated herself. As the 2 Lady Panthers closed on her she spun bewteen both of them at the top of the 18 and was well on her way in behind and tucked the ball away to give the Lady Vikings a 2-1 win.

Missouri bound goalkeeper, McKenzie Sauerwein preserved the win in the final minute of play with a breakaway save to keep Nolan Catholic on top.

Clutch performances all around for nationally ranked #13 Lady Vikings as they improve to 16-3-0. "Consistency, belief, and several clutch performances got you the result tonight," Nolan Catholic head coach, Jay Fitzgerald told his team after the match.

Nolan Catholic has a chance to move into the Top 25 and avenge last weekend loss to nationally #25 Plano West as they take on the Lady Wolves again on Thursday at Clark Stadium East at 5:45pm.

The next LIVE broadcast will next Tuesday night as the Lady Vikings play host to Marcus High School.
