On a beautiful Wednesday evening, our Lady Owls fought hard against a very aggressive Houlton team. Although Houlton scored first in the game, our girls were able to equalize the score at 1 - 1 late in the first half. Houlton then went ahead 2 - 1 which is where the score remained for most of the second half. With only minutes remaining, Madawaska was awarded a penalty shot when a Houlton player was called for a handball in the penalty area. Senior Nicole Cyr was selected to take the shot, which sailed left of the keeper, and evened the score a 2 goals apiece. Neither team was able to capitalize on the 10 minutes of extra time, resulting in a 2 - 2 final score.
Our girls are now 1-1-1 on the season.
Note: The JV girls also won their game this evening by a score of 2 - 1.
