High winds favor Northeast

(Continued)

"I don't really know what I was thinking," Krogman said of the save. "I kind of baited him by sliding to the left, hoping he would kick it right, which he did."

Schoon credited Krogman's second-half performance as key to securing the win.

"He did an awesome job coming out with a shutout," she said. "He came up big."

The loss dropped Prince of Peace's record to 0-2. Coach Rafael Simmons said Thursday's contest could have swung either way given the elements.

"Whoever won the toss for the pick of the sides got lucky to go out in the first half and attack with the wind," he said. "I thought we did a good job for 35 minutes of that half, and then in the last five minutes, we conceded two goals. In the second half, we pressured as much as we could, trying to use the wind."

He hopes to work on finishing those opportunities as the Irish regroup in practice.

"But those kind of chances, they can go either way," Simmons said. "If we got a toe on it and put it in the net, it could've been a different story."

Up next for Prince of Peace is a trip to Eldridge for the North Scott Invitational Tournament today and Saturday. Meanwhile, Northeast will travel to face Monticello at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
