Sycamore ousts Burlington Central
May 22, 2015 9:50 PM - The Sycamore girls soccer team figured a quick strike might lead to a better outcome. The Spartans were knocked out of the playoffs last season by Burlington Central and they dropped a 3-0 decision to the same Rockets earlier this spring. Falling behind Central in Friday's Class 2A regional final simply wasn't part the host Spartans' plan. Ella Holland took a cross-box feed from Alyssa Hemmerich and knocked inside the far post 87 seconds into the match to give Syamore a lead it would never relinquish. The Spartans added a second goal in the 16th minute from Alyssa Maillefer and withstood a second-half header from Central's Elizabeth Gousios to prevail 2-1.
