The Devils are now 2-1 overall.
“They were just beating us to the ball and winning all the 50/50 balls,” said LHS coach Chris Felthouse. “And we weren’t talking.”
TJ Morning scored Lancaster’s only goal off a free kick in the first half for a 1-1 tie at the break.
Neither team scored in the second half for a 1-1 tie at the end of regulation time. Mathews scored three minutes into the first overtime and held Lancaster scoreless in both five-minute overtime periods.
“We will learn from our mistakes and it’s clear we have some things to work on in practice,” said Felthouse, “but I feel this team will be just fine as the season goes on.”
Lancaster goalkeeper Connor Donahue had 17 saves.
Lancaster will open Northern Neck District play at home on April 12 against Rappahannock.
