LEWISBURG -- In a matchup featuring postseason-bound teams Danville and Lewisburg, there was little room for error Thursday.

Before 20 minutes had ticked off the clock the game was tied, but after an additional 75 minutes of play the game remained knotted at one goal apiece.

It wasn't until Paige Harris scored off a Riley Jones assist midway through the second overtime that the Ironmen emerged victorious, edging the Green Dragons, 2-1, in Heartland-I action.

Lewisburg (6-6-4 overall) opened with a goal by Kaylyn Watts with an assist by Lindsay Ayers.

Danville (9-7-2, 6-6-2 HAC-I) tied the game just over eight minutes later when Sara Naessig scored with an assist by Harris.

"It was a good game. We had a lot of chances, and Danville played well and they had some chances as well," said Lewisburg coach Jose Vega. "(Harris' go-ahead goal) was unfortunate, but both teams make the playoffs."

n Midd-West 1, Shikellamy 0

MIDDLEBURG -- Just one day after claiming its first district playoff berth in six years, the Braves had a power outage versus the Mustangs.

Makenzie Kauffman scored with 4:42 left in the first half to give Midd-West (7-9-1, 5-8-1 HAC-I) the only goal it needed for a HAC-I victory.

Paige Mancini made nine saves for Shikellamy (9-8-1, 5-8-1), while Brynn Markley had two stops in the shutout for Midd-West.

n Mount Carmel 2, Mifflinburg 1

MOUNT CARMEL -- Ali Varano scored the 99th goal of her career in the game, and it couldn't have come at a better time. It was scored with just 44 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Red Tornadoes the HAC-II win.

In its final regular season game, Mount Carmel (13-5 overall) scored both of its goals in the second half. Izzy Stellar scored unassisted 4:17 into the period to tie the game at 1.
