Stewart’s OT goal lifts Pirates past Vikings
Sophomore Heidi Stewart’s goal with five minutes left in the first 10-minute overtime lifted Swansboro to a 2-1 Coastal 3-A Conference girls’ soccer win at White Oak on Friday night.
Stewart scored off an assist from Hailey Farnes.
"It was a big win for us and a much-needed win to keep our playoff hopes alive,” Swansboro coach Doug Kidd said. “We talked about having people step up and tonight we felt like that happened. This is a great result for our girls.”
Farnes scored on a penalty kick in the second half of regulation to give the Pirates a 1-0 edge. However, White Oak’s Kamryn Davis scored on a PK with about 10 minutes remaining in regulation to tie the match.
