SELLERSBERG — Silver Creek displayed some toughness and was lifted by Ciera May in its 1-1 tie with Seymour on Saturday.
The Dragons and Owls both played solid defense during the match and goals were tough to come by. After both teams went without scoring in the first half, Seymour opened up the scoring with a goal in the 49th minute. With time ticking, May, who battled an injury all game, found the back of the net and knotted the game up at a goal a piece.
“Ciera May scored and played great after barely being able to play in the first half,” Silver Creek coach Patrick Anderson said. “She’s been injured, didn’t start and could barely run in warmups but she toughed it out and found a way to score.”
After the May goal, neither team was able to score again and the Dragons some what held home field with the tie.
“I was very happy with the way we played today even though we didn’t get the result we wanted,” Coach Anderson said. “We felt like we controlled the game and we definitely attacked more in the offensive third but we could only get one in.”
