Leavitt and Lincoln Academy run out of time, settle for tie

...Leavitt freshman Jayden Carpenter took a long shot at Eagles (5-6-2) goalie Kortney McKenna in the waning seconds of the second five-minute period of overtime, but McKenna was able to punch the ball over the net for a corner kick. Carpenter ran to the right corner to take the kick, which first found the head of Alison Noniewicz before making it to Gilbert.

"I saw that no one was marking me and I saw how perfect that corner was, so I headed it once and it didn't go where I wanted, then I had the perfect opportunity, just went over," Gilbert said. "I thought it was (going in) until I turned."

It was a near-miss and a missed opportunity for a win that the Hornets (3-8-2) needed to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The tie all but locked up a postseason berth for the Eagles.
