In the 30 yards it took Elizabeth Zaffino to walk to the spot where she would boot the penalty kick that put Greenbrier into its first girls soccer state semifinal, she had plenty of time to think.
Her mind raced. She said she didnt know what to think, only what not to think.
I didnt want to look at anyone, because I knew I would get emotional, she said. (Teammates) were already crying because we had made it this far.
Her mind clear, Zaffino guided the ball into the right side of the goal for a goal that gave Greenbrier a 4-3 shootout win over the Bulldogs after game play ended in a 2-2 tie. The Wolfpack play at No. 1 Parkview Tuesday night.
