At Mars Hill Tuesday night, Dustin Pryor scored a goal for Central Aroostook with 16 minutes left in regulation to tie the game at 2-2 and send it into two scoreless overtime periods.
Washburn’s Cameron Bragg started the scoring by beating two defenders at the top of the 18 and depositing the ball past goalkeeper Spencer Garrison into the right corner of the goal just 10 minutes into the game.
Play was even until Central Aroostook’s Darrin Murray banged home a ball that came through the 18 to the left side of the goal with 15 seconds remaining in the first half.
Both teams had quality scoring chances in the second half when Washburn’s Alex Pelletier gave the Beavers the lead eight minutes into the second half from a Micheal Erikson assist.
Both overtime periods saw some quality opportunities both ways but goalkeepers Mitchel Worcester of Washburn and Hunter Crouse of CAHS kept the nets clean.
Worcester ended up saving 12 of 19 shots for 3-2-1 Washburn while goalkeepers Garrison and Crouse combined for 10 saves on 18 shots for 0-3-2 CAHS.
