Norris Outlasts Gretna 2-1 in PK Shootout

The Norris Titans defeated the Gretna Dragons in a thrilling PK shootout at Titan Field on Friday, April 29th. The Dragons and Titans met in the Semi-Finals of the EMC Tournament - the winner would advance to Saturday's championship game in Elkhorn.

Both sides had chances in the first 80 minutes, but regulation ended with a 0-0 tie. In the first overtime period, Gretna struck first on a poor clearance by the Titan back line and knocked a shot into the back of the net. The Titans answered with about one minute left in the first OT period when Josh Funk beat the Gretna GK to a ball and headed it into the back of the net. The second OT was a stalemate as both teams did not have great chances to take the lead.

In the PK Shootout, the Titans won 4-2. Josh Funk, Tanner Wood, Keegan Johnson, and Drew Freehling made their PK's and two Gretna chances missed to give the Titans their first-ever berth in the EMC Conference Championship.

Due to the EMC Conference Championship game being cancelled, the Titans will be crowned Co-Champions, along with Elkhorn South.

Next Action for Norris is Monday against Lincoln Lutheran in the first round of the B-4 District Tournament. The Titans and Warriors will kick-off at 5:00 PM at Titan Field.
