Kahley clutch under pressure; leads Mifflin County to nail biting win over rival State College

LEWISTOWN – Every time the Mifflin County Huskies field hockey team meets rival State College, most fans know they will be in for quite the battle.

Wednesday night was no different as both teams went back and forth throughout, looking to crack the others defense and get a goal.

After a scoreless first half, the two teams picked up the intensity as the game became a nail biter with each tick on the clock.

As the time round down to the 25-minute mark, the Lady Huskies started to push the ball back down into the Little Lions back third.

As the time dipped under 24 minutes, the Huskies got the ball to senior Keni Kahley.

Kahley, who has proven to be one of the emotional leaders on the team, lined up a shot and sent it past the State College goalie, giving the Lady Huskies the 1-0 advantage.

Having already proven to have a strong defensive end with the likes of Lydia Hidlay and the other strong young defenders, Mifflin County was able to turn away State College time after time, leaving the Little Lions empty handed and frustrated.

Goalie Coletta Beeler was automatic when called upon posting five saves en route to the victory.
