Saving its best for last, the Fort Dodge girls soccer team posted a 2-0 shutout victory over Sioux City North in a Class 3A, Region 2 semifinal Wednesday evening inside Dodger Stadium.
Following a scoreless opening half, the Dodgers (7-9 overall) received goals after the break from juniors Paige Savery and Francis Lee.
"The first half was very shaky and we were a little unorganized, but we regrouped and sorted things out in the second half," said FDSH co-head coach Lindsay Boeckman. "We just need to continue to work hard and hopefully transfer all the energy over to Monday."
