Holliston 2, Norton 1
HOLLISTON - Seven minutes into the first "sudden victory" period, the Panthers of Holliston put a ball past Norton goalie Audrey Maia, ending the Lancers' brilliant postseason run in the MIAA Division 2-South Sectional Tournament.

"I feel blessed to have worked with such a talented group of kids," said Norton coach Todd Kefor, whose No. 17 seeded Lancers (8-6-7) battled the Tri-Valley League champion Panthers tough for the third time this season.

While Norton had dropped 1-0 and 4-1 decision to Holliston during the TVL campaign, Norton refused to surrender space to the Panthers during the scoreless first half. The Lancers' backline defenders - Kate Ledbetter, Jillian Wry and Stephanie Powers - rose to the challenge.

"Our defense held up very well, and that's against a very fast offense," said Kefor of Norton staving off many a Panther run. Maia, who had a dozen saves in goal for Norton, gave the Lancers a chance for the win.

The Lancers, who had scored six goals in winning their first two rounds in postseason play, had Holliston on its heels - taking the lead six minutes into the second half.

Nicollette Schuko headed in a corner kick taken by Ledbetter to stun the Panthers. Holliston had a sleight 7-3 edge in shots during the first half and finally tied the match in the 70th minute on a through ball. "They pressured us in the first half, but in the second half, we came out much more aggressively," said Kefor. "We had a few pushes, we broke them down."
