Varsity battles to a 7-7 tie vs South Lyon

What an exciting game! Both teams played aggressively — keeping the refs busy all night calling penalties. Hartland led for almost the entire game until late in the second half when South Lyon went up 7-6, but Hartland fought back hard. Senior, Ashley Stoltenberg, scored with minutes left in the match-up to tie the score at 7. The final seconds of play had both teams scrambling for the ball and everyone in the stands on their feet. But time ran out and both teams settled for the draw.

Hartland's Nikki Cerovec, Anna Lundwall, and Courtney Lee each scored two goals while goalkeeper, Kelsey LaValley stopped 13 shots for Hartland.

After the contest, Hartland's players and coaches were very satisfied with the effort knowing that South Lyon usually has their way with us. Not this year.

Hartland will host Tecumseh on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 7:00pm.

Go Eagles!
