Waverly, ND tie again
WAVERLY, N.Y. - The Waverly Wolverines and Notre Dame Crusaders entered Wednesday's game tied atop the IAC standings.
When the game was over the standings remained unchanged as the two teams tied for the second time this year, finishing 2-2.
Notre Dame struck first Megan Herrick scored on a direct kick at 22:08 of the first half.
The lead didn't last long as Bailey Rando took a cross from Danielle Burkhart and the ball bounced into the net tying the game at 25:05.
Waverly took a 2-1 lead into the half as Emiley Myers hit a perfectly placed corner that went over a leaping attempt by Notre Dame goalie Sheridan Heine and went right to Elle Nittinger on the far post for a goal.
"I thought the first half especially we played pretty well and that's what we have been working on all year, possessing the ball and being dynamic with your runs," Waverly coach Brian Myers said. "We tired to get the ball moving and especially against Notre Dame because Heine is obviously a good goalie, I believe the way to score on her is pinging balls around and putting pressure on."
In the second half Herrick got her second goal, again off a corner kick, at 57:29.
That was the last score of the game as the two team's settled for a tie, after finishing in a scoreless tie in their last match up.
The goals were the first either team has allowed this season.
"It feels good to be in a position to still have a shot in the league," Myers said. "I'm a little disappointed in the two goals they scored that were on free kicks. I'm not happy with the 2-2 tie because I truly believe we are the better team, but what matters at the end of the day is the score on the scoreboard."
Waverly had eight shots and two corners in the game and Notre Dame had five shots and one corner kick.
Allie Frutchey finished with two saves in net for the Wolverines and Heine had five for Notre Dame.

"I was pleased with how our girls played tonight," Northeast Bradford coach Larry Jennings said. "We are struggling with a lot of injuries. The girls are learning new positions and doing their best in positions they have never played before. They are a tough group of girls that are going above and beyond to keep us in every game."
