soccer girlskick120The Lansing Girls Soccer team made it known early in their game on Wednesday versus Marathon that they would earn their spot again this year in the Class C Sectional Finals.  Only sixteen seconds into the game, Senior defender-turned-striker Maddie Czymmek put the ball in the net to give Lansing a quick lead.  Senior Reilly Zajac would follow with another goal only a few minutes later.

Czymmek, who was moved to striker only a few games ago, would hit another shot assisted by Senior Megan Dean less than ten minutes later, bringing the LadyCats to an early 3-0 lead.   Marathon Senior Ashley Bush would put Marathon on the board shortly after Czymmek's second goal.

Minutes into the second half, Zajac was able to convert a corner kick to bring the score up 4-1.  Dean nailed a free kick from about 30 yards out that hit the crossbar and went in to bring the Lady Cats to 5-1.

Lansing would substitute out its starting offense, but the Olympians struggled to get the ball past the Lansing defense,  which has been consistently strong all season.  Lansing outshot the Olympians 27-6.   Sophomore goalie Lena Gisler had four saves to bring the Lady Cats back to the Sectional Finals again this year.   Last year, the LadyCats defeated Elmira Notre Dame to become the Sectional champions and the two teams will meet again this Friday at 4:30 pm in Norwich.
