“We were hoping to get through the first 10 minutes of overtime tied,” Lions head coach Steve Denton said. “We were able to make a couple of runs, but they were able to capitalize on once chance and we weren’t.”
The Lions best chance came late in the second half, when the Lions powerful counter attack got the ball to the foot of Emily Morris, who fired a shot into the upper right portion of the Chateaugay net. Bulldog keeper Makayla Fleury made a jumping save, pushing the ball over the crossbar to keep the game scoreless.

The Plattsburgh Lady Hornets also found it hard to break into the scoring column, as Schalmont scored three goals in the second half to defeat PHS, 3-0. Karlie Neal made seven saves for the Hornets.
