After 77 breath-taking minutes, Nichols saw senior forward Jessica Brady head a cross into the back of the net to break a scoreless tie as the Lady Eagles went on to a 1-0 win, clinching a playoff berth in the process on Friday at Moorhead Stadium.

“(When the ball went in) I felt like I could breathe again,” Nichols said. “One thing that our girls have done a good job of all season is not quitting. This was another sign of that tonight. I was real proud of our girls.”

Atascocita (5-6-1 in District 16-6A) came in needing a win to clinch a playoff berth and for most of the game it looked like the Lady Eagles would have to settle for a tie – meaning College Park would need to lose in its next outing. click here for complete story
