WHITEHALL – Northwestern coach Kelly Bleam called them "golden opportunities."
Bleam was referring to several first half scoring chances that her Tigers had in the District 11 semifinals against Whitehall on Tuesday night.
Unfortunately for Northwestern, none of those golden opportunities were turned into goals.
That proved to be a recipe for disaster.
While the Tigers struggled to find the back of the net, Whitehall grabbed a first half lead and methodically controlled play after intermission to post a 3-0 victory.
