Niwot outlasts Northridge to capture Northern League title
May 3, 2017
Ahead of last Thursday’s match against the league-leading Northridge Grizzlies, Niwot midfielder Charlotte McCarthy knew that the stakes were high for the Cougars. With a victory over the Grizzlies, Niwot would be in a position to win the Northern League outright for the first time in nearly a decade, automatically earning a berth to the Class 4A playoffs. A loss to the Grizzlies, on the other hand, would muddy the playoff picture considerably.
“We’re extremely excited about Northridge,” said the senior. “We know it’s a must-win game, so we’re going to put in the work.”
