Almost 24 hours after its beginning, the Greenfield-Central-Mt. Vernon girls soccer match finally came to a close with the home Cougars edging the Marauders 2-1 in a penalty shootout.

Postponed because of lighting Monday night, the Hoosier Heritage Conference foes resumed their game Tuesday evening at Greenfield.

The game resumed mid-shootout, as the inclement weather was spotted five kicks into the PKs.

Heading into Tuesday, the Marauders owned a 1-0 penalty-kick lead, but had taken three shots to the Cougars’ two.

G-C sophomore Katie Helgason kicked off the action Tuesday evening by sliding a dribbler past Marauders senior keeper Olivia Coleman to even the score 1-1.

With a chance to regain the lead, Mt. Vernon’s next shooter attempted a similar tactic to that of Helgason, but her kick bounded just wide of the post.
