By Ray Hamill — Arcata senior Bailey Cherms provided one of the sports highlights of the school year back in November, when she netted the overtime winner in the North Coast Section semifinal at Eureka with a brilliant strike.
Relive the moment here, as Cherms sent her teammates and the Arcata fans into a frenzy with the winner just seven minutes into sudden death overtime at Albee Stadium.
The goal gave the Tigers a 2-1 win.
“I think that’s in the top two high school games I’ve ever seen,” long-time Arcata head coach Patrick Stranahan said afterwards. “It really was. You couldn’t ask for any more from either team.”
The game was an instant classic, and one the players and fans who were there won’t forget anytime soon.
