GALLATIN – Only five minutes remained in Tuesday’s match between the White House Heritage and Gallatin girls soccer teams.
The Lady Wave held a commanding 2-0 advantage and were looking to add to their lead.
The only problem? Coach Greg Harper’s team got a little too aggressive on offense, leaving the defense vulnerable to a counterattack.
White House Heritage senior Alex Green took full advantage and scored a pair of goals in the final five minutes. The game ended in a 2-2 draw.
“Bad coaching at the end on my part,” Harper said. “We didn’t need to press the attack up so high. (Heritage) put four (players) up (top), and we didn’t recognize it. That’s my fault for not talking about it.”
The Lady Patriots were not fazed by the late deficit. In fact, Heritage has faced similar situations already this season – once in a 3-3 tie at Nolensville Sept. 3 and again in a 7-5 win over Sycamore Sept. 19.
“It shows their resilience,” Heritage coach Rett Roach said. “In high school soccer, you go down two goals and a lot of teams would just give in. This group doesn’t. In three games, we’ve been down two goals, and we’ve won one of those games and tied two of them.”
