Facing an elimination game Oct. 30 against visiting Entiat, the Manson High School soccer team survived a 1-1 tie in regulation, two sudden-death overtimes and finally won, making three penalty kicks to Entiat's one, in a shootout to advance to the 2B League Championship game.
The official score will be Manson 2, Entiat 1.
Playing in a steady, chilly drizzle, Manson's Bianca Sanchez scored on a penalty kick at the 10:30 mark of the first half.
Manson's Itzel Castro seemingly scored again on a breakaway that would have put the Lady Trojans up 2-0. But Manson was called for off sides and the officials nixed the goal.
Entiat controlled much of the middle of the first half and narrowly missed a goal when Manson Goalie Alexis Castro deflected a powerful shot on goal that struck the crossbar and ricocheted away.
Within 10 minutes of the second half, Entiat's Yecenia Ramirez tied the score.
Manson, the league's No. 2 seed, lost to No. 1 Liberty Bell, 3-1, in the 2B League Championship game Nov. 3.
