The Senior Women’s soccer game was an exciting affair on Saturday morning. Montague went ahead 1-0 on a questionable call that led to a penalty kick and a Viking goal. Midway through the first half Jill lawless had a wonderful run down the side through most of their team before a well-placed strike in the corner of the net. Montague then scored to go ahead 2-1. The referee then made a wonderful call to give the girls a penalty kick off a Rachel green corner kick. Rachel then tied the game on the ensuing penalty kick.

The score remained tied thanks to the strong defensive play of Emily Kelly and Claya Cole. A 20 minute overtime produced no goals and the game was decided on penalty kicks. Keeper Shelby Sudsbury set the tone with a fantastic save off of the first Viking shooter. Then Rachel Green calmly scored to give the KISH team the lead. Shelby made a save on the second shooter as well while Kelsey Haslam just missed the top corner. Montague tied the shootout on a great kick while Jillian Lawless just missed by striking the crossbar and having it land on the goal line. In the fourth round the Vikings were again stopped by Shelby and Claya Cole narrowly missed the far side. In round five Shelby made a fourth incredible save and with the game and bronze medal on the line, Alexis Mulligan calmly deposited the ball in the lower right corner to seal the victory. All three of the KRSH were named to the All-Star team. Congratulations on a fine season, ladies. Please return your jersies to Mr. Corcoran and Mr. Ranahan this week.

At the recent Island Literary Awards, three Kinkora High students placed in the top five for creative short stories in the intermediate category. Meghan Morrell and Jaden Nantes tied for second, while Olivia Mullins placed third.
