ELIZABETHTOWN-LEWIS 1, TICONDEROGA 1, OT

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Sentinels and the Lions went scoreless through two overtimes as both teams played to a 1-1 tie.

Ticonderoga’s Kylie Austin sent a corner kick into the box that Jaelyn Granger buried for the game’s first goal at 28:59.

With 10 minutes left in the game, Elizabethtown-Lewis tied the score when Emily Morris sent a shot into the upper right corner from 20 yards out.

During overtime, shutdown defense and stellar goalkeeping kept either team from scoring the go-ahead goal.

Kearsten Ashline and Emma Disorga combined for 14 Elizabethtown-Lewis saves, while Megan Campney made 10 saves for Ticonderoga.
