Johnson, Lyndon play to 1-1 draw

JOHNSON, Vt. – Johnson State and Lyndon played to a 1-1 draw after two overtimes in North Atlantic Conference play. 

Lyndon received an unassisted score from Emily Strese (Gilmanton, N.H.) and Johnson saw Chelsea Hostetter score with an assist going to Stephanie Fay. Johnson keeper Amber McCullock made seven saves in the tie while counterpart Tia Billado (Bellows Falls, Vt.) stopped nine shots.

LSC struck early in the second half Strese took a shot that deflected off McCullock behind to her rear left.  The ball, spinning intensely, bounced came back in front of the goal where Strese pounced on the loose ball and scored with 33:27 left in the match.

Hostetter would knot the score at 1-1 taking a field in the middle of the field at the top of the penalty box from Fay and blasting it past Billado's extended left arm.

In a very evenly played match, the teams both recorded 19 shots with LSC holding a small 6-4 edge in corner kicks on the day.
