A dramatic last-second goal in overtime after a come-from-behind performance earned the Bradshaw Mountain High Lady Bears soccer team its first victory of the season. The Lady Bears downed host Glendale High 4-3 this past Thursday.

The win came on the heels of Tuesday's 3-0 home opening loss to Mingus Union.

The victory proved Bradshaw coach John Sterling's comment after Tuesday's loss that his Lady Bears "played an excellent game and are constantly improving."

He said two mistakes on corner kicks against Mingus cost Bradshaw goals.

"That could have meant a whole different score line and kept the game a lot closer and given us a chance late in the game," Sterling said. "I'm so proud of them. They're playing above and beyond what I've expected of them, and I get a lot of compliments from other coaches and people who watch the game about how well they're playing."

He named his defensive back four - seniors Kylie Wells and Kayla Heglund and juniors Heidi Madler and Kiara Montoya - as the reason the "games haven't gotten away from us."

"They're doing everything right and playing just incredible," Sterling said.

Thursday, the host Lady Cardinals went up 2-0 early, but the visitors pulled one back on junior forward Tayler Hancock's goal, so Bradshaw trailed just 2-1 at halftime.

The Lady Bears turned the tables early in the second half, hitting two quick goals of their own to go up 3-2. The first was Hancock's second on the night, on an assist from freshman Hannah Madler to knot the score 2-2.

"Hannah laid a beautiful cross in for Tayler to get a foot on," Sterling said.

Senior forward Brianna Carroll scored the go-ahead goal for Bradshaw, but Glendale forced the overtime period with an equalizer late in the game.

Then, with 14.2 seconds remaining in OT, Bradshaw "got the result" when Carroll booted in the game winner.

"The girls fought and battled, fought and battled," was the way Sterling described the night's action. "I'm very proud of them. They fought, they won."

Bradshaw entered a four-game home stand yesterday and looked to make it two in a row, hosting Kingman after the Tribune's press time.

Flagstaff Coconino comes to Prescott Valley next Monday for a 6 p.m. game, and Prescott will arrive Dec. 20 for the final contest before Christmas break.

Sterling invites groups of young girls, such as Girl Scouts, members of the (Boys and) Girls Clubs and any others, to "walk on" the field, each accompanying a varsity player during home game introductions. Call him at 273-4444, for arrangements.
