Wolverines play Tologs to 2-2 tie

first_imgUnfortunately for the Tologs, that’s all the visiting Wolverines needed. Erin Kristovich knocked in a shot in heavy traffic to forge a 2-2 tie with the Tologs in the cozy confines of Crane Field. LA CA?ADA FLINTRIDGE – Victory was there for the taking. Regulation time had expired and all the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls soccer team had between it and a win over Harvard-Westlake was a minute of injury time. The tie was enough for the Wolverines (13-7-5, 6-0-3) to clinch their sixth straight Mission League title. The Tologs (10-6-5, 3-4-2) were all but eliminated from postseason consideration with the tie. They are in fifth place. They can tie Chaminade for third with a win over Notre Dame on Wednesday, but the Eagles hold the tiebreaker with two wins in head-to-head play. “Flintridge is the unluckiest team on the planet … they deserved to win tonight,” Harvard-Westlake coach Richard Simms said. Mary Amato sent a free kick from the center line into traffic. The ball ended up on the foot of Kristovich, who dashed the Tologs’ upset bid. “We’ve got to clear the ball out of the box,” Sacred Heart coach Frank Pace said. center_img Sacred Heart has not beaten the Wolverines, who increased their unbeaten streak in league to 18 matches, since 1999. Coco Weaver broke a scoreless tie early in the second half with a goal off a cross from Katie Shelly to give the Wolverines a 1-0 lead. The Tologs responded on a goal by Carter Vettese in the 53rd minute. Carly Crowder scored just four minutes later to give the Tologs a 2-1 lead. Vettese caromed a shot off the crossbar in the 74th minute that could’ve iced the win. “We had a couple of good chances, but give Harvard-Westlake credit. They come from a culture of winning,” Pace said. [email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
