Pioneers defeat Big Spring 2-1 in double overtime match

Athletes talk of giving 110 percent. Imagine having to give 133 percent. That's exactly what the Lampeter-Strasburg Field Hockey team did on Wednesday in their 80 minute match against Big Springs in the first round of District 3 tournament play.
LS tries for an offensive goal. Score still 1-1 with 14:29 left to play.

Here's the Pioneers celebrating the win!

For the uninitiated, a field hockey match typically lasts 60 minutes with two 30 minute halves. At the end of the second half, the Pioneers stood tied, 1-1 with the Bulldogs thanks to Josie Weaver's first half goal.

It wasn't until Abby Thorius hit a corner goal with a 10:30 left in double overtime to give field hockey the win, 2-1.

Credit for the victory also goes to L-S goalie Autumn Peters who proved her mettle by stopping 11 shots on goals.

L-S plays again on Saturdayat 3 pm in the next round of the tournament against third-seeded Twin Valley.
