PREP ROUNDUP: Timberwolves top Cogs to win G-K Regional

The Indian Creek girls soccer team defeated Genoa-Kingston, 1-0, in overtime Friday to win the Class 1A Genoa-Kingston Regional championship match.

Josie Diehl posted the shutout in goal for the Timberwolves.

“We had our chances in regulation time, but just didn’t finish against their keeper, who played a great game,” G-K coach Randy Tate said. “We had at least three opportunities that I thought were going to be goals, but she made great saves to kill the attack.”
