Cass came from behind twice to tie the state’s No. 7-ranked AAAA girls high school soccer team on Wednesday.

Phil Phillips, head coach, said he was pleased with the showing of the Lady Colonels against Heritage in which they tied the highly regarded team 3-3.

Heritage had jumped out to a 2-0 lead and let the Lady Colonels tie them before halftime.

In the second half, Heritage took a 3-2 lead in the game’s 45th minute and held that lead for 25 minutes.

That’s when Cass knotted the game again when Mallary Hedden headed a direct kick into the net.

“Our girls showed a lot of character to come from behind 2-0 and then a second time when down 3-2,” Phillips said.

The coach said the team got off to a slow start at the beginning of the year but has turned things around the last four games.

Heritage opened scoring against Cass in the 10th minute and then added a second goal in the 20th minute, grabbing a 2-0 lead.

Cass got back on the comeback trail in the 24th minute when Hedden scored for the Lady Colonels off an assist by Katelynn Harbeke.

The Lady Colonels then evened the score at 2-all in the 28th minute when Madison Scoggins picked up a goal with an assist by Jana Morning.

“It was a very good outing for us,” Phillips said, “especially when you consider our team had played the night before and some of our girls were a little tired.”

The victory lifted Cass High’s record to 4-4-1 overall. The Lady Colonels are 2-0 in their region.

Cass returns to the soccer field Friday, when it hosts Cedartown at home.
