Bethel Lacrosse Lady Wildcats Lose a Heartbreaker to Joel Barlow 11-10 in OvertimeThe Bethel Lady Wildcats came up short in a back and forth contest which had to be settled in overtime. After trailing at halftime 6-4, Bethel began to mount their comeback with three unanswered goals to take the lead 7-6. Behind Stephanie Hirst’s 6 goal performance, Bethel exchanged goals and took a slim 10-9 lead into the final two minutes of the game. However, Joel Barlow’s defense forced a turnover and after a wild, four shot, scramble in front of Bethel’s goalie Stephanie Forese, Joel Barlow scored the tying goal with 8 seconds to play.
The overtime sessions were no different than regulation as both teams had chances to notch the game winner. Joel Barlow scored late in the second overtime session and was able to outlast Bethel’s last ditch scoring drive to win the contest.
Third year Head Coach Shelly DeSisto was pleased with the effort the girls gave and felt Bethel sent a message to the rest of the league. “It’s tough when you lose a tight game like this because it wasn’t from lack of intensity or effort” commented DeSisto. “Sometimes the ball bounces in your favor and sometimes it doesn’t. What’s important now is that we prepare for two other SWC games this week against Brookfield and New Fairfield”.
