Kaitlyn Dreman scored twice in less than two minutes in the first half and the Huntington University women's soccer team held off visiting Saint Francis in the second half to gain a 3-2 win on Thursday, Oct. 18, at Huntington North High School.

Lisa Underwood's goal at 58:55 off an assist from Brittany Hartman gave HU what looked like a secure 3-0 lead, but Saint Francis fought back to within one with just over four minutes left, although the Foresters were able to hang on for their 12th win in 16 games this season.

Dreman, a sophomore, got her first goal at 42:43, and practically before her teammates got sat down on the bench she scored her second, at 44:11.

Sam Barclay had seven saves in goal for HU.

Saint Francis got on the board at 62:06 when Alysha Johnson scored. Things got tense 23 minutes later, however, when USF's Samantha DeWael tallied to tighten the score to 3-2.
