Lady Indians advance to conference soccer tourney seeded fourth

Northumberland and Washington & Lee played to their second overtime tie of the season in girls varsity soccer last week. The two teams went scoreless, 0-0, through double overtime.

“The game was extremely hard fought and neither team wanted to lose,” said NHS coach Mark Fridenstine.

The Lady Indians took 11 shots on goal with Tahi Wiggins, five; Cameron Lewis, three; and Hannah Loving and Alice Sisson, one each. Wiggins also had five takeaways and Lewis, three. Grace Emminizer was credited with 10 takeaways and Erin Burgess four.

The Eagles had 29 shots, almost three times the number of shots taken by Northumberland, “but NHS goalie Addie Swisher had a monster game and was knocked down repeatedly, diving for the ball and playing lights out goalie,” said Fridenstine. “After the game Eagles’ head coach Cole Vanover congratulated her on the super game she had.”

The two teams earlier this season played to a 2-2 overtime tie.
