Late TD lifts Union

Female kicker comes through for Tecumseh
Jennifer Goethe made believers of the Tecumseh coaching staff this week, and out of fans of the Savages on Friday night.
Goethe's 22-yard field goal in overtime gave Tecumseh a 16-13 victory over Noble. Her kick came just two days after she joined the team.
Coach Greg George said some of his players called him this week after seeing Goethe, a sophomore soccer player, working out. “They said, ‘Coach, you've got to see this girl kick,'” George said. “She's in my second-hour history class, so I told her to come out and give it a try.”
Goethe took him up on the offer. “We stopped practice, put the ball down on extra points, let her go at it,” George said. “We backed her up five yards, she hit those. We backed her up a little more, she hit those.”
