(After overtime)

Souderton hosted Central Bucks South Tuesday night in a hard fought match that ended up taking overtime to decide the winner.

South started the game positively with a well-designed corner kick routine that resulted in a shot that sailed just over the bar. Three minutes later, South found the back of the net with a shot that came from the corner of Souderton's penalty box and hit the underside of the crossbar to put the visitors up 1-0.

Souderton was forced to chase the game and throw numbers forward. With 28 minutes left in the first half, Grace Kelley provided the spark Souderton needed to tie the game. Kelley won the ball in the midfield and beat her mark to slip a ball into Souderton's attack. From there, Hannah Alderfer and Averie Doughty were able to combine down the sideline for Alderfer to fire home a powerful finish.

Both teams traded a few chances in the remaining minutes of the half, but couldn't find the go ahead goal.

At the start of the second half, Souderton was on the front foot, as they worked the ball into the wide areas and sent in a number of dangerous crosses. Alderfer sprung in behind the defense with 32 minutes left in the half and unleashed a dangerous shot that the South keeper was able to poke wide of the net with a strong kick-save. Souderton was able to sustain pressure through a number of corner kicks, but couldn't apply the finishing touch to go ahead 2-1.

With 9 minutes left, Souderton's attack drew the South goalkeeper out of position, as they tried to unleash a shot. Just as the scoring opportunity seemed out of reach, Avery Nogami let rip a well-placed finish into the corner of South's net to put the Indians up 2-1.

CB South, however, didn't give up on finding the equalizer. With 3 minutes left, South's forward found herself in a good position at the top Souderton's penalty area, where she was able to turn and fire a shot into the corner of Souderton's net to send the game to overtime.

In the first overtime period, Nogami almost fired home the game-winner, but South's goalie was able to come up with the save on a 1v1 opportunity. Souderton's goalkeeper, Morgan Molyneaux, was also called into action, and was forced to make a number of acrobatic saves to keep the Indians in the match. It wasn't until the second overtime period that the Indians were able to find the game-winning goal, as Leah Mowery sent in a dangerous ball off a set-piece, which Taylor Yoder was able to poke home.

The Indians were able to bounce back after their first loss of the season at CB West on Friday, as they took down CB South in overtime on their home turf.
