Cherry Creek nips SLUH on penalty kicks at Gateway Soccer Classic

For 79 minutes and 59 seconds, it looked like No. 49 SLUH would pull off the upset of undefeated No. 9 Cherry Creek (Colo.). But a last-second shot deflected off Junior Billikens goalkeeper Jack Robinson and into the goal, tying the score at 1 and sending the game into overtime, where Cherry Creek won on PKs to advance in the Gateway Soccer Classic.

That should give you a taste of how exciting the play at this tournament is and will be this weekend. Click here for a recap of day one, which included Chaminade playing to a draw with previous No. 1 Jesuit (Calif.), and here for a complete scoreboard.
