The Copley girls soccer team will play at Medina at 3 p.m. today in a Division I district championship game.

Coach Wally Senk said his Indians team "won a thriller" against the host Wadsworth Grizzlies in a district semifinal game on Tuesday.

The Indians (9-7-2) advanced past the Grizzlies (12-3-2) via penalty kicks after the two sides were tied 3-3 after 80 minutes of regulation play and two 15-minute overtime sessions.

Copley trailed 2-0 at halftime but rallied back. Junior captain Anna Haverchak and sophomores Brooke Brenner and Jordan Cotleur each scored one goal for the Indians, and sophomore Courtney Campbell added an assist.

The Indians proceeded to convert eight penalty kicks while the Grizzlies made seven in the shootout.

Senk said the eight players who made a PK were senior captain Amanda Revesz, junior captain Beth Moore, Haverchak, freshman Gabby Banayan, Cotleur, Brenner, Campbell and freshman Kailah Ransom. Indians goalkeeper Beth Moore stopped a Grizzlies PK and Ransom buried the clincher.
