CV knocks Cocalico out of Districts
A week ago, Cocalico bounced defending L-L champ CV out of the League playoffs with a decisive 3-1 victory in the quarterfinals.
Monday afternoon in Witmer, CV returned the favor in the first round of the District Three AAA playoffs.
Jocelyn Yurchak’s arching shot from the right wing found its way into the left side of the net with 11 minutes gone in overtime to lift the Buckskins to a 2-1 victory over Cocalico. The CV win not only avenged its earlier loss to Cocalico but ended the Lady Eagles’ season.
CV (15-4) will now advance to Thursday’s quarterfinals to face Governor Mifflin, a 3-0 winner over Dallastown in Monday’s first round.
Cocalico, which advanced all the way to the L-L title game Saturday before falling on penalty kicks, ended the year at 16-6.
CV drew first blood Monday after Samara Yurchak was awarded a penalty kick in the game’s 24th minute. Yurchak delivered a shot inside the left post to give her team a 1-0 advantage.
Cocalico then got the equalizer 10 minutes into the second half when Shannon Hoeveler scored off a nice pass from Kat Lawver to draw even at 1-1.
In overtime, CV carried the early play with a few chances, but Cocalico responded with a pair of opportunities, including Emily Zwiercan’s blast from point-blank range that was gobbled up by CV keeper Jess Plunkett.
That set the stage for the gamewinner, which was set up by a pass from Ashlee Hoover. She found Jocelyn Yurchak down the right side and Yurchak buried it to close things out.
For the game, CV out-shot Cocalico, 6-5, and also held a slight advantage in corners, 3-1. Cocalico keeper Emily White made four saves in the loss.
Cocalico opened District play last Friday at home with a convincing 4-0 victory over Central York in a play-in game.
Lawver scored a pair of goals while Hoeveler and Emily Zwiercan also found the back of the net.
Leah Dungan, Lawver, Hoeveler and Emily Zwiercan all had assists on the Cocalico goals.
The Lady Eagles outshot CY, 10-3 and held a 5-3 advantage in corners.
White made three saves in the net for Cocalico. More CV, page B-4
