Late goal seals win for Queens

CLINTON — Hannah Dehner and her Clinton High girls soccer teammates figured it was just a matter of time before they broke through with some insurance goals.

While one of the Clinton co-coaches said it probably was good for the River Queens to play a close game for so long, the other wasn’t so sure.

“If you enjoy heart attacks, it was great,” Bill Feaster said.

The Queens finally relieved Feaster of the stress, scoring twice in the final 7 minutes, 30 seconds to beat Northeast 3-0 in their season opener Friday night at Coan Field. Hannah Burken scored the second goal and assisted on the third.

“I’m happy we responded in the second half,” Feaster said.

“Eventually, I knew we’d score,” said Dehner, who assisted on the game’s lone goal in the first 82 1/2 minutes. “We worked their defense out tonight.

“It’s definitely a confidence booster.”

Co-coach Spencer Mesick said there was no harm in playing a close game for almost 75 minutes.

“It really helps to go 1-0 for so long,” he said. “Especially looking ahead to Muscatine (Clinton’s next opponent, Tuesday at home), where we’re going to have to be on our toes the whole game.”

Clinton was on the attack for most of the game, but the Northeast defense and goalkeeper Haley Bielenberg continually kept the ball out of the net.

“We have a first-year goalkeeper who is learning and improving by leaps and bounds,” Northeast coach Matthew Kepple said. “Kaile Hoffmann, our sweeper, did real well, too. It was pretty even until the last eight minutes, when we got tired. We ran out of steam.”

It was just the type of game Kepple wants to see from the Rebels.

“We play a counterattack style, then go for it,” he said. “We hope for close games.”
