I felt like they were strong and they were wearing on us.” McDonald, on a rare 1-on-1 situation near the goal, sent a shot to the corner that South Hills goalie Danielle Steward dove for but couldn’t get. It appeared as though the game would reach overtime, but a brief volley around the Huskies’ goal produced a chance for Gilbert to send a header over Stewart, who was rendered defenseless on the play by having to gamble by coming out. McDonald scored two minutes later by breaking a 1-on-2 dilemma and sent a rocket that hit the goal post, went 2 feet inside the goal and bounced out. COVINA – Freshman Nicole Gilbert scored on a header in the 78th minute and Pepperdine-bound Kylie McDonald added an insurance goal two minutes later to lift Westlake High School’s girls soccer team to a 3-1 win over host South Hills on Tuesday in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Division II playoffs. The loss was a cruel finish to a stellar season for the Huskies, which included the team handing area power Walnut its first San Antonio League loss en route to a share of the league title. South Hills finished 19-5. “I just told them after the game was over how proud I was of them,” South Hills coach Scott Mocabee said. “This game isn’t going to take away what they accomplished this season, beating Walnut and beating Canyon (in the first round).” South Hills broke a scoreless tie at halftime when Tiffany Schneider took advantage of an error by Westlake goalie Jackie Jacobsen, who came out from the goal for a loose ball. center_img aram.tolegian@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
