High school girls’ soccer: Kubalak’s goal sends Penns Valley past Altoona

Kylie Orndorf notched 25 saves as Penns Valley weathered a storm of Altoona shots in a 1-0 girls’ soccer victory on Saturday.

Altoona outshot the Lady Rams 37-7, but Orndorf kept the Lady Mountain Lions off the board. Valerie Kubalak broke the tie scoring 6:12 into the second half off a pass from Rachel Hodgson.

“This was our fourth game in six days and the girls definitely looked a little tired,” Penns Valley coach Jeff Smucker said. “The defense was able to hold it together while withstanding a barrage of shots and earned another shutout. After our forwards had a number of breakaways, Valerie Kubalak finally converted one for us to give the team a nice win to round out the week.”
