The Whitehall girls soccer team’s season came to an end at the 9:39 mark of the second overtime in their District 11 semifinal game against Easton.

The second-seeded Zephyrs and third-seeded Red Rovers had been locked in a scoreless battle for over 100 minutes of playing time before Easton was finally able to break through following back-to-back corners.

Whitehall had beaten Easton 2-1 during the regular season and had outplayed Easton for most of the playoff game.

During regulation, the Zephyrs outshot the Rovers 9-5 and also led in corners, 4-1.
