Highlights from Tuesday’s girls state soccer semifinals

Alter’s bid for a third trip to the girls state soccer finals fell short with a 1-0 loss to Granville on Tuesday at Hilliard Bradley High School. The Lady Knights (16-6) put 22 shots on goal, but the Blue Aces’ defense came up big in keeping them off the scoreboard.

Granville’s tally came 12 minutes into the game after a free kick ricocheted off the goal, resulting in a Chloe Kent header into the corner of the net. Granville (19-2-1) will face Rocky River on Friday in the Division II state final at Crew Stadium in Columbus at 3:30 p.m.


Senior Chloe Knue scored with two minutes left in overtime to send Mason back to the Division I state championship game with a 1-0 win over Pickerington North. This is the second straight year that the Comets have sent the Panthers home in the state semifinals.

Mason (18-2-2) has yet to give up a goal this postseason, and will take on Walsh Jesuit on Friday in Columbus at 7 p.m.

The battle of Greater Catholic League Co-ed rivals did not disappoint as Badin outlasted Fenwick 2-1 in double overtime at Lebanon.

After a scoreless opening half, it took Fenwick exactly one minute to break the tie. Defender Margot Harknett corralled a loose ball in the box off a corner from Taylor Engle, turned and buried a shot in the lower left side of the net in the 41st minute.

Badin made its first shot on goal in the second half count. Malia Berkely got behind the Fenwick defense as the ball ping-ponged in the box. Berkely collected the ball, made one move and put the shot far post past a diving Jenni Rossi to knot the score 1-1 in the 74th minute.

In the second OT, Badin’s Madi Kah knocked a header into the far post off a corner from Bri Scowden to send the Rams to their first Division III state final since 2007. Badin (14-4-4), looking for its first title since 2005, will face Gates Mills Hawken on Friday at noon at Crew Stadium in Columbus.
