MORRISTOWN — This wasn’t what Chris Woods had in mind.

This wasn’t what Woods’ players had in mind. This, really, was not what anyone expected.

Anyone other than Morristown West that is.

Woods’ Dobyns-Bennett stumbled in the semifinal round of the Region 1-AAA girls soccer tournament for the second consecutive season Tuesday night. This time, a 3-1 comeback win from the hosts not only ended the Lady Indians’ postseason run but also served as a particularly devastating way to exit considering the way the game unfolded.

D-B (9-9-3) controlled the opening half, and led through a Maggie Burkett goal in the 21st minute, only to concede six minutes from the halftime interval and unravel thereafter.

How bad was it? D-B produced just two shots on target in the second half, neither of which really troubled Trojans goalkeeper Erin Murphy. This after the Lady Tribe forced Murphy into a series of excellent stops during the opening 45 minutes.
