Palmer girls 2, Skyview 1
The Moose got a pair of goals from Richelle Knapp to come back from a 1-0 deficit against Skyview Saturday in Region III action at Skyview High School.
Amy Lambe gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead 10 minutes into the game when she received a pass from April Friedly a little past midfield and carried it all the way inside the penalty area, where she beat the Palmer keeper with a shot to the far corner.
Palmer came back with a penalty shot from Knapp about six minutes later. Knapp then scored the match winner 33 minutes into the first half.
"It would have been nice to get a win," Skyview coach Tony Lewis said after his team dropped to 3-4 overall. "I think we can beat these teams now. We could never play with Palmer before.
"We can play with the likes of Palmer now. Not that we should have won the game, but we had opportunities to win the game."
Ailis Vann had 16 saves for Skyview, and Lewis said Jenny Carpenter did a good job slowing down Palmer's Tami Callison, who is considered one of the best players in the state.
Lewis said Callison missed most of the second half because she was hurt, and said that Palmer didn't generate any good scoring chances in the second half.
Skyview boys 1, Palmer 1
Jacob Fellman, on an assist from Ty Edward, scored with 12 minutes left in the game to earn host Skyview a tie Saturday against Region III foe Palmer.
John Kaster gave Palmer the lead with 20 minutes to play, but the Moose couldn't hold on for the victory.
"You've got to admit SoHi set the standard (Friday) night," Skyview coach Dave Carpenter said of Soldotna's 1-0 victory over Palmer. "It would have been nice to keep up with them, but anytime you get a tie against Palmer it's a good thing."
The Panthers had been playing an improved passing game of late, and Carpenter hoped it would continue against the quicker Palmer squad. For the most part, Carpenter said his team still played a good passing game.
Josh Rowell had 10 saves for Skyview, while Carpenter also liked the play he got from Brendan Martin and Chris Rice.
Homer boys 4, Houston 1
