SELINSGROVE -- With time running out in the regular season, the Mustangs put it all together and got an overtime goal from Kenedi Moyer to pull out a big HAC-I victory over the Seals.
Selinsgrove (9-1-1, 6-1-1 HAC-I) sent the game into overtime behind a goal by Lacy Trautman scored with eight minutes, 23 seconds left in regulation. Marissa Heddings assisted on the goal.
But once in overtime Moyer put a quick end to the game by scoring unassisted just 32 seconds in.
"It was a big win. I'm glad I got a solid game finally out of the girls," said Midd-West coach Russ Goodling. "I had to throw two defenders in the game who haven't played much this year -- junior Lexi Horst and freshman Reilley Spriggle -- and they both did well being thrown into the fire today."
Moyer finished with two goals. She scored in the first half along with Brianna Beiler for Midd-West (4-5, 2-4).

SELINSGROVE -- The Seals are still searching for that elusive win to punch their tickets into the District 4 team tournament after the Millionaires shut them out in HAC-I action.

Although No. 1 player Sara Moyer needs to be in the lineup for the Seals to bolster their chances in the final two games. She didn't play against the Millionaires due to an ongoing right shoulder injury.
"It's rough without Sara, because it's tough to match up with other teams," said Selinsgrove coach Duke Fravel.
