The Wabash girls soccer team fell to Blackford 3-2 Thursday.
Playing with just one sub, the Lady Apaches kept the offensive pressure the entire game, down to the very last second! After finding themselves down 2-0 in the first half, freshman Abbie Hipskind buried a goal off a Yoakum assist to make it 2-1 at halftime.
The Lady Apaches continue to fight through fatigue to continue pressuring Blackford and had several near misses. Sophomore Natalie Adams drew a penalty in the box that junior Rylee Yoakum put in the back of the net to make it 3-2. Senior Kalista Ballschmidt, Senior Ashley Province and Senior Linda Cordes did an amazing job holding the back line and junior Hannah Layne had another really strong night in goal with 13 saves.
