HU bootwomen lose to Bethel in 2OT

The Foresters outshot the Pilots, 22-5, with nine tries on goal to four for Bethel, but goalkeeper Mallory Conrad repeatedly foiled Huntington. After faltering early and spotting the Foresters a 1-0 first half lead via a Sam Cubic goal, Conrad, the Crossroads League saves leader, made eight stops to shut Huntington out the rest of the game.

The Pilots pulled even, 1-1, on an Abby Snider goal at the 63:22 mark in the second half. Following a scoreless first overtime period, Kylee Shipley netted the game-winner for Bethel at 106:28 in the second.

Goalie Caitlin Adams recorded two saves for the Foresters in the losing effort.
