Girls Soccer Team Finishes with Draw in Double OT

In one of the most exciting girls soccer games played at Connetquot High School in years, Coach Ryan Cavanagh’s T-Birds took Lindenhurst High School into double overtime and earned a 0–0 tie at home on Oct. 4. Connetquot’s 5-3 record has earned the team a third-place position in the league just behind Lindenhurst, which holds second place to an undefeated Northport High School.
Connetquot goalie Emma Bunicci made nine saves in the game, but her save of an indirect kick by Lindenhurst with less than four minutes to play preserved the shutout, which led to a scoreless final after two overtimes. The T-Birds had a chance to take the lead with less than 10 seconds left, but Lindenhurst unfortunately made an outstanding save to deny Connetquot the win.
Congratulations to Coach Cavanagh and the Lady T-Birds on an outstanding effort against Lindenhurst High School. Connetquot hosts William Floyd High School at home on Saturday, Oct. 7.
