Last year, after losing to Lincoln Southwest in a shootout in the district finals, NPHS received the wild card to gain entry into the state tournament.

That will not be the case this year however. On Tuesday, Omaha Marian, the No. 1-ranked team in the NSAA power points standings, was defeated by Lincoln Southwest in its district final.

The Lady Dawgs finish the season with a record of 12-3.

After the shootout, not knowing about the Marian-Southwest game, NPHS coach Sarah Kaminski was fighting back tears as she stated how proud she was of her team.

"It was a hard-fought game," she said. "The girls played hard and did everything they needed to do. It was too bad that it came to a shootout."

For eighty minutes, North Platte and Millard West played to a scoreless tie in unfavorable conditions. If it were a regular season match, it likely would have been postponed or cancelled.

But the teams played on. Both teams had their chances but just couldn't put the ball in the net and it was to be decided in a shootout.

Paige Phipps of Millard West opened the shootout by beating Bulldog goalie Jackie Paloucek.

Marisa Martinez answered back for North Platte with her goal against Wildcat goalie Jordan Cassalia.

It was the only make for the Lady Dawgs in the shootout. After Mackenzie McGlynn made the next shot for Millard West, Maggie Bianco was stopped by Cassalia.

Isabella Kubo then made it three for three for the Wildcats with her goal. Then Madalynn Doughty missed her shot off of the left bar.

Megan Waldron then clinched the district title with her goal and sent No. 4-ranked Millard West to the state tournament.
