Three second-half goals powered Eisenhower’s girls soccer team to a 4-1 victory over Romeo in a Division 1 district quarterfinal match Tuesday at Swinehart Field.

After Lauren DeBeau scored the lone goal of an Eisenhower-dominated first half, Meike Ingles doubled the Eagle lead less than six minutes into the second.

“We had chances in the first half, so of course it was big,” Eisenhower coach Mehrdad Nekoogar said of Ingles’ goal. “It was big because we controlled the whole game and Romeo played very hard, but we needed to start putting the ball in the net.”

The Eagles again dominated most of the second half, but a surge from Romeo about halfway through resulted in a goal from Sophia Romine.

Romine nearly scored a tying goal less than a minute later, deflecting a pass just over the net.

It would prove to be Romeo’s last good chance of the game, but coach Trevor Foster reiterated how proud he was of the Bulldogs’ performance with their backs against the wall.

“We played with a lot of heart,” Foster said. “The game kind of opened up near the end once we opened up and started pressing.

“In the last 20 minutes, you’ve got to press if you’re down, and I think we did a good job fighting back,” he added.

Foster also praised Eisenhower’s play, calling the Eagles the “best team in the state”.

DeBeau, a sophomore, headed in an insurance marker for Ike with 12:53 on the clock and Ingles, a freshman, scored her second of the game with 3:02 left.

“They’ve both been working very hard and they are both skilled players,” Nekoogar said of the two young phenomes. “If we can get the ball on their feet, they may miss one here or there, but they are experienced enough that they can finish for us.”

Eisenhower will travel to Rochester Hills Stoney Creek on Thursday for a district semifinal match with Rochester at 5 p.m.
