Evansville struck twice in a matter of minutes to win a girls soccer regional road game Thrusday night.

The fifth-seeded Blue Devils got a goal from Sarah Deininger at 56 minutes and Abby Meehan just before the clock struck 60, and they went on to beat No. 4-seeded Big Foot/Williams Bay 2-0.

“We just wanted it,” Evansvile coach Kendall Buttchen said. “I have a group of 12 seniors on the team, and they didn’t want this one to be their last game.”

Evansville will take on top-seeded Belleville/New Glarus in a regional final road game at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Big Foot/Williams Bay won both of the regular-season meetings against Evansville.

The teams were scoreless through the first half, but the Blue Devils’ defense rushed forward to put the team on the board. Deininger scored off a pass from Emmeline Ross.

Meehan finished off a cross from Sydney Decker minutes later to stun the ChiefDogs.

“The first one was a great shot,” Buttchen said. “Then we got a great cross and finish, and it was just right back to back.”
