The Lee University soccer teams both won 1-0 with late goals in Gulf South Conference quarterfinal matches on a cold, windy Tuesday in Cleveland, and both will play Mississippi College in semifinals Friday in surely warmer Pensacola, Florida. The Lady Flames' winning score against Valdosta State (11-7) was so late that it came at 108:51 — almost at the end of the second overtime period — Kelsey Yoder netting a superb pass from Laura Weimer. Yotam Balbul scored for the Lee men (10-4-4) against Christian Brothers at 81:58 from an Owen Keck assist, and goalkeeper Daniel Hrenko made four saves. Taylor Green had five saves for the Lady Flames (15-4), who had a 23-8 margin in shots, 12-5 in shots on goal. Earlier Tuesday, Lee junior midfielder Jared McWhorter was named the GSC men's offensive player of the year, senior Hrenko and sophomore defender Jonah Bryan made the All-GSC second team and Lady Flames senior forward Riley Engels made the women's all-conference first team. Engels, a Signal Mountain resident, has seven goals, including three game-winners, and five assists this season on a very balanced team, while McWhorter has seven goals, three winners and two assists.
