Week of Sept. 18: Goals hard to come by in Division I contests

The goals were hard to come by for the Centaurs girls soccer team in a pair of Eastern Connecticut Conference Division I contests.

The Centaurs began the week with a long night in East Lyme.

The scheduled 7 p.m. start got pushed back a bit by a match prior on the surface and the Centaurs and Vikings got locked up in a duel that ended in a 1-1 tie in double overtime.

Isabella Selmecki scored the only goal of the match , off an assist from Juliet Allard, for Woodstock Academy in the first minute of the contest.

The Vikings rallied to tie the match 15 minutes into the second half.

Neither team scored in the two 10-minute overtimes that followed.

It was the second straight double overtime tie for Woodstock Academy in an ECC Division I contest.

But it was better than what happened on Friday.

The Centaurs returned home for another Division I contest at home against Norwich Free Academy on the turf at the Bentley Athletic Complex.

Unfortunately, the ball would not find the back of the net for Woodstock Academy (2-1-2, 0-1-2).

The Wildcats scored with 29 minutes left in regulation to post the victory.
