On a rainy Senior Night, Saline faced SEC opponent Pioneer in Hornet Stadium. It was a hard fought 60 minutes of play that ended in a draw. The two teams tied earlier in the season 1-1.
Tonight, Pioneer scored first with 6 minutes left in the first half, and the Hornets answered quickly with two back to back goals. Senior Erin Reilly put the Hornets on the board, drilling the ball into the upper net on a reverse chip shot. One minute later, Sophomore Tenley Schzan stole the ball and on a give and go pass, found Emelia Little who tipped it by the Pioneer Goalkeeper.
Saline defense was lead by Abby Kleinschmidt, Shae Murphy, Jo Walder and Sophie Goethals. The strong defensive unit has posted 8 shutouts this season.
Saline plays Pinckney tomorrow at 4:30pm.
