Rebels fall in shootout

GOOSE LAKE — One-hundred minutes of play couldn’t decide the Northeast-Western Dubuque girls matchup. After taking a scoreless game to a shootout, it was the Rebels who found themselves on the losing end, being outshot by the Bobcats 3-2 in penalty kicks.

Hannah Near and Cara Soenksen netted Northeast’s two shootout goals. Keeper Victoria Kuznetsova also recorded 16 saves in the overtime loss.

Burlington’s goalkeeper, Guage Pender, totaled 10 saves on the night.

The River Kings fell to 3-9-1 on the season. They’ll host Davenport West on Tuesday for the regular-season finale at 7 p.m. on the Ashford University Field.
