Self-imposed pressure does in Spartan girls soccer team


The pressure of the WIAA playoffs got to the Somerset girls soccer team last Thursday.

The Spartans were hoping to defeat Osceola after tying and losing to the Chieftains in their two Middle Border Conference games this season.

Osceola advanced to Saturday’s regional championship, where the Chieftains lost to Ashland 6-0.
