Mid-Prairie earns comeback win at Columbus
Addie Rath recorded her fifth hat trick in two seasons as the Mid-Prairie girls soccer team came from behind to pick up its first road win of the season, 3-2 at Columbus on Thursday, April 13.
Mid-Prairie trailed 1-0 at halftime and an ‘own goal’ put the Golden Hawks behind 2-0 early in the second half.
Mid-Prairie coach Reid Kaalberg said that his team settled down during the halftime break and approached the next 40 minutes with more focus.
Rath drew a foul and cut the lead to one with a penalty kick. Later, a Wildcat handball gave Mid-Prairie another PK and Rath scored the equalizer.
“We just needed to come out strong, because in the first half we didn’t at all,” Rath said.
“We looked like we didn’t even want to be there. In the second half, we just had to step it up.”
Rath scored the go-ahead goal on a breakaway.
“It felt good, because we were down and we really need that,” Rath said. “We knew it was a team that we could get.”
