CLEARFIELD -- When it comes to soccer, there is nothing worse than running out of gas at the end of the game and dropping a tough decision at home.
So when Clearfield coach Lauren Clifford is struggling as to whether her players need that one extra wind sprint after a tough two-hour practice, those questions all developed into one significant answer Tuesday afternoon against Region 6-leading Bountiful.
Yes, they were worth it.
Never showing any signs of weakness in a thoroughly dominating performance, the Falcons scored in the final seconds of the second overtime as freshman Amber Marshall poked home a rebound off her own shot for a complete 1-0 victory over the Braves, giving the home side a share of first place.
"I could see it in their eyes -- they wanted to win this game and there was no way they were ever going to give up," Clifford said. "Conditioning is one of the worst parts of soccer and the girls don't like it very much -- in fact they hate it, but after seeing the results of those workouts and sprints, I'm pretty sure they won't complain again."
Clearfield dominated possession from the very beginning to the end of the game. That possession resulted in some great chances on goal that never found the net. Bountiful had a couple of chances to score in the OT, but McKenna Sill was up to the task of stopping every single shot put on frame.
Leading up to the goal, the pressure the Falcons put on the Braves was almost too tough to handle. And it was the hard work of the defense and a beautiful cross from Amaris Nunez that set up Marshall's game-winner.
Her initial shot was deflected and knocked down by the Bountiful keeper, but Marshall found her way through a bunch of players to poke it in the back of the net right as the official blew for the end of the game.
