CORNING - Corning secured a 2-2 tie with Ithaca at home on Wednesday in a Southern Tier Athletic Conference girls soccer matchup.
"I said girls, there's two things I care about today," Corning head coach Julie Pierce said. "You outwork them and that you care about eachother and we went out and we did that. We battled back-and-forth the entire game with a really good and improved team."
Erin Dracup netted the lone goal in the first half for the Little Red, who came in to the game 7-1-1, eight minutes in to the contest depositing a loose ball in to the back of the net.
The Hawks responded with only four minutes left in the first 40 minutes when Lauren Gerow scored off a rebound.
Corning took a lead in the second half when Ashley Volpe scored six minutes in, but Seneca Blakely-Armitage tied the score with 16:48 to go on a penalty kick.
After two 15 minute overtimes, nobody was able to find the back of the net. Ithaca's best chance was saved by goalie Olivia Brand in the second overtime.
"I have two goalies that would start on any teams with Olivia and Erin [Terwilliger], good kids and top of their class," Pierce said. "Olivia made a huge save, it would have been game over. I was really pleased with her effort."
Corning (4-5-1) will travel to Binghamton today at 7 p.m. in its next contest.
