Schell held steady in Northwest’s net through a marathon 2-1 win against Nixa High School in the Jefferson City Tournament Friday. He kept Nixa scoreless through the final 80 minutes of the match, then two overtime periods. And even though he had to stand up against 15 penalty kicks before a winner was decided, Schell made four saves, including the game-winning stop of the final Nixa kick.
