Ken Kurtz/Spectrum Photography Gering defender Megan Copsey boots it past Kearney Catholic’s Ella David in the district semifinal loss to the Stars on Tuesday at Landers Complex in Scottsbluff. 
The Gering girls’ soccer team was edged by Kearney Catholic Stars, 2-1, in the semifinal round of the B8 District playoffs on Tuesday, while the Bulldog boys’ team suffered a semifinal loss to the Lexington Minutemen, 2-0, the previous night at Landers Complex in Scottsbluff, where both matches were played.

The margin for victory came late in the first half for both teams, when Catholic and Lexington scored all they needed to advance.

Kearney Catholic, the No. 3 seed, played Scottsbluff in the finals at Landers on May 5, before press time. The Scottsbluff girls advanced to the finals after defeating Holdrege, 5-1.

The Bearcat boys advance to sub-state after defeating the Minutemen, 3-1, after losing to Lexington in the district finals the last four years.

The Gering girls, who had defeated Kearney Catholic, 4-2, on March 28 in North Platte, finish the season with a 7-9 record. In the match, the more active Bulldogs had 21 shots with 11 on goal, while Catholic had eight shots, with five on goal.

This was the final high school match for McKenna and Megan Copsey, Hadley Kirk, Abby Kiesel, Katie Martindale, Annmarie Sabastiani, and Zoe Van Dyke.

The Minutemen finished the season at 10-8, while Gering finished the season at 6-11. In the match, Gering had five shots overall with two on goal.

This was the final high school match for Chris Bartow, Javier Campos, Jason Doll, Luis Hernandez, Brenden Brester, Brent Barge, Jacob Pieper, Josh Parra, Nolan Nelson, Ty Romey, Cristian Moreno, Deion Contreras, and Mitch Martin.
