WILD pitch!

Sullivan West and Manor battle to a furious OT tie

By Richard A. RossSullivan West 2, Livingston Manor 2

LAKE HUNTINGTON—Sometimes a tie feels like a win.
For the Sullivan West Lady Bulldogs, down 2-0 at the half, coming back to tie the score in the second period and battling to a stalemate over the course of the two ten-minute overtime periods to marshal the tie felt like a Dawgs' delight.
It was an uplifting moral victory for Sullivan West, a team that had endured its share of early season struggles.
Coming off an impressive 5-0 win over Chapel Field, the first victory under the watchful savvy eye of Coach Diana Hahn, this come-from-behind tie was a product of intensified second period and OT effort and great team play.
Manor's goals came courtesy of junior standout Sam, “I am Sam, Sam I am,” Severing, the firebrand junior year-round striker who scored four goals against Tri-Valley in the Lady Wildcats 8-3 win two days prior.
Sullivan West got its initial goal from sophomore phenom Grace Boyd off a feed from senior Arieon Frazier.
Frazier then blasted a penalty kick by Manor keeper Melissa Banks to knot the game up at 2-2.
Sullivan West keeper Riley Ernst as well as Manor's Banks were outstanding in the net. more
