Barlow girls take a high-scoring thriller over Clackamas
6A GIRLS SOCCER
Mount Hood Conference
The Barlow girls soccer team bounced back twice in the second half to notch a 5-4 home win over Clackamas on Tuesday night.
The Bruins tied it up after Hannah Rispler sent a deep throw-in to the near post, and teammate Paige Hinkel put it away with 17:07 left.
Clackamas attempted to regain its lead a few minutes later when Aidan Brown and Joeine DeKar combined on a give-and-go that resulted in Brown getting off a blast from the top of the 18-yard box that sent Barlow goalie Lisa Martin flying toward the post to knock it off target.
The Bruins would flip the field with Abi Hoffman making a run down the right side before slipping a pass inside to Mikayla Topaum, who was making a run down the center. She juked her defender as she moved into the box, leaving her 1-on-1 with the keeper, who she beat with a low roller into the right side for the winning goal with 11:23 to play.
Hoffman scored twice for the Bruins — once in each half.
Barlow (6-1-2) hosts David Douglas at 7 p.m. Thursday.
