BANGOR, Maine – Husson and Castleton played to a 2-2 draw on a rainy Saturday afternoon in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) action at Boucher Field.

Izzy Hutnak then doubled Castleton’s lead to 2-0 in the 23rd minute on an unassisted goal of her own. With time winding down in the opening half, the Husson (6-7-2, 5-1-2 NAC) cut into the Castleton lead when Taylor Fortin found the back of the net to make it 2-1 in the 44th minute.
Both sides played scoreless soccer for a majority of the second frame, but the Eagle offense applied enough pressure to crack the Castleton defense for a second time. Mollie Roy collected a goal in the 83rd minute to knot the game at 2-2 and send it to overtime for the second time in as many contests between the two sides at Boucher Field.
Neither team registered a shot in the first overtime period, sending it to a second extra frame. In the second overtime, both teams recorded one shot with no success in breaking the tie, as the 2-2 result held through the final whistle.
