Corbett is perfect on penalty kicks to win the shootout 6-5 over Cascade Christian

by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Corbett goalie Kendall Sheerman sends a goal kick out of the box during the first half. He diving save in the sixth-round of the shootout sent the Cardinals into the 3A quarterfinals. The Corbett girls soccer team won its opener in the OSAA 3A playoffs Tuesday afternoon in a penalty-kick shootout over Cascade Christian out of Medford.

Neither side could crack the goal through 100 minutes of action, leaving a series of penalty shots to decide a winner. The Cardinals were perfect in their six attempts, putting Cascade’s Mackenzie Hickman on the dot with the match in the balance. She targeted the bottom corner, but Corbett goalie Kendall Sheerman dived to her right and punched the shot wide to give the Cardinals the win.

The two players had clashed earlier in the match during some rough play in front of the Corbett goal.

“I had some falling out with her during the game, she kept kicking at me when I had the ball, so I had even more motivation to block her shot,” Sheerman said.

The Cardinals (11-5-0) advance to face No. 1-ranked Oregon Episcopal (12-1-2) in Saturday’s quarterfinals. A start time has yet to be announced.

Corbett gave OES one of its toughest games of the year two weeks ago before falling 1-0.
