High School Girls’ Soccer:

Huntingdon ties; Tussey shut out Huntingdon made its first foray into overtime this season at Penns Valley Tuesday. A hard-fought match went through two extra periods and ended in a 3-3 tie. The Bearcats (4-1-1) trailed 2-0 at halftime. Huntingdon went in front 3-2 but the Rams forced overtime with a goal inside of 10 minutes left to play. “We came out flat and couldn’t hold things together,” Huntingdon head coach Michael Armstrong said. “We struggled getting off the bus and dealing with their quick and physical play. “In the second half we settled and changed things up a bit giving Megan Lynn and Abbi Henney some serious minutes to help us solidify our midfield by having them play defense.” Less than two minutes into the contest the Rams got on the board. With 28 minutes to go in the first half Penns Valley was up 2-0. Jordan Hawkins assisted Maddie DeForrest early in the second half for Huntingdon’s first goal. Heather Gutshall scored on a penalty kick to tie the game with 15:53 still to play. She has seven goals on the year and has at least one in every game so far. Mikaela Reed put the ‘Cats in front with under 10 minutes to go, but Penns Valey’s Abagail Martin knotted things again at 3-3 on a free kick just out of the reach of Katie Shultz. The overtime periods were back and forth but neither team could convert on opportunities. Amanda Gwinn scored for the Bearcats in the junior varsity game that also ended tied 1-1. Huntingdon is home Thursday for Philipsburg-Osceola.
