Newaygo 2 Kent City 2
For the second match in a row the Lions soccer squad saw the time on the scoreboard expire with a tie score.
The difference this time was that their opponents actually put numbers on the board.
Jaxi Long found the back of the net and Grace Painter took a Connelly Hefferan-Nordlund pass and fired in the team’s second goal but the Eagles matched their visitors with a pair of tallies and the game ended with neither team taking a loss.
Kent Ciy’s 2 goal output was twice the number of goals managed by the previous 8 Lion foes.
There are currently 3 teams without a loss in conference play, Tri County, Big Rapids and the Lions. Newaygo faces the Vikings at home Wednesday before traveling north to take on the Cardinals Friday.
