Arlington Edges Blue Devils in OT
After falling to Arlington under the lights on their home pitch just a few short days ago the Poultney girls soccer team was determined to have a better showing on their own home digs. The Blue Devils certainly did that. However, they still came up a bit short as the Eagles jumped out to an early lead then won the game 3-2 in overtime in a Vermont Division IV matchup.
For awhile it looked as if Arlington may duplicate last week's effort. The Eagles got two goals from Sydney Herrington to lead 2-0 at the half.
Poultney fought back in the second 40 minutes, but not until late in the game. The Eagles still held a two goal advantage with under 10 minutes remaining.
Eme Silverman pulled the Blue Devils within 2-1 It was Silverman's third goal in the last three games.
Hannah Welch then scored on a breakaway to equalize for Poultney and force overtime.
In the extra session Catherine Morrissey converted a pass from Herrington for the Golden Goal, thus handing Arlington the victory and a season sweep of the Blue Devils.
Goalie Kenzie Ezzo was huge for Poultney, showing why she is one of the area's best keepers with multiple clutch saves.
Arlington is now 8-4. Poultney is 5-6.
