Winless Walton shocks Unatego girls with tie

Carlee Hoyt's goal with about two minutes left in the first half helped host Walton to a 2-2 Midstate Athletic Conference girls soccer tie against Unatego on Thursday.

The Spartans (10-2-2, 7-2-2) opened a 2-0 lead in the first 15 minutes on goals from Chelsie Dalton and Theresa Guardiano.

"They got up on us in the first 15 minutes," Walton coach Kelly Gates said. "The last time we played them, they beat us, 7-0. I was just hoping it wouldn't be a repeat. We kept playing hard and got some scores."

Walton rallied, getting a goal from Nicole Jeanniton with 11 minutes to play in the first half to make it 2-1.

Hoyt scored off a corner kick from Erin Boyd, heading in the shot from about 6 yards to tie the score.

The teams played through two scoreless overtime periods, but Gates said seven of Unatego's 20 shots came in the second overtime.

"The first five minutes of that overtime, they were aggressive and pounding the ball at our net," she said.

The top of the MAC standings are jumbled with Unatego, Unadilla Valley (10-3-1, 7-2-1) and Sidney (9-3-3, 7-1-3). Unatego will host Sidney on Wednesday.

The Warriors (0-9-3, 0-8-2), who denied Unatego coach Sue Herodes her 200th career win, play host to Oxford on Saturday.
