Clear Fork Comes From Behind To Kick Ontario

It was a tale of two halves in Tuesday's battle between area soccer powers Ontario and Clear Fork. 

The first half belonged to the #3 ranked team in the state, as the Lady Warriors took a 2-0 lead in the opening 16 minutes. Junior midfielder Brittany McCauley struck first, giving Ontario a 1-0 advantage at the 27:54 mark. Then just minutes later sophomore forward Amanda Nething converted a Lady Warriors corner kick for a 2-0 lead with 24:09 to play in the half. 

When it seemed Ontario had all the momentum, a laser shot by Clear Fork freshman Kaylin Helinski would pull the game within a score at the 16:46 mark. It was the first goal allowed all season by Lady Warriors senior keeper Katherine Beech, who pitched three shutouts to start the campaign. 

Then came the second half, where Kaylin's older sister, standout senior forward Jordyne, flat out took over the match. 

Helinski tied the game at 2- 2 when she snuck one past Beech just over three minutes into the stanza. Less than two minutes later Helinski would strike again, carrying the ball from mid- field through a swarm of Ontario defenders and rifling a shot to the far post to give 11th ranked Clear Fork a 3-2 cushion. 

Helinski would later fail to convert a penalty kick that could have iced the match, but the Lady Warriors sloppy play would prevent an equalizing goal and secure a Lady Colts victory. 

The win improves Clear Fork to 3-1 with St. Peter's next on the schedule for a home match this Thursday. 

Ontario falls to 3-1 with the loss and will host Akron St. Vincent St. Mary on Thursday.
