Division III District Semifinal: Wheelersburg 2, Fairfield 2 (2-0 PK)
The Pirates, in the most dramatic of ways, advanced into a Division III district final with a win over Fairfield (11-6) in penalty kicks.
The two programs were tied 1-1 at halftime and 2-2 after regulation. But after two 15-minute overtime periods weren’t enough to decide a winner, the Pirates took advantage of a golden opportunity with PKs.
Ellie Kallner and Kylan Darnell scored the Pirates’ two penalty kicks while goalkeeper Brynley Preston made three game-saving saves.
Wheelersburg (14-3-1) will now face Eastern Brown at 1:30 p.m., Saturday at Waverly’s Raidiger Field.
