Coach Tim Colleran’s team took a 2-0 lead against P-E-M Tuesday, only to watch the Bulldogs score a pair of second-half goals to knot the game at 2-2 after 80 minutes of action. After a pair of five minute overtime periods, neither team was able to score and the game ended in a 2-2 tie.
Ali Beardmore scored the Warriors’ goal in the first half off an assist from Trece Frank. Sam Colleran had the second half goal, and goalie Olivia Schmitz made 10 saves.
At Dover-Eyota Saturday Caledonia dropped a 4-1 decision to PIZM but bounced back with a 3-1 win over New Ulm.
The Warriors took along junior varsity players, and Colleran said, “Josie Wagner, Sierra Bechtel, Ashley Gavin, Erin Meiners, Kelsey Hermanson all did a fine job. Tracey Felten forward and goalie Olivia Schmitz played well in both games. Samantha Colleran, Erin Meiners and Hannah Felten did a great job controlling the midfield in the second game against New Ulm.”
Caledonia had 15 shots on goal and New Ulm had 11. Olivia Schmitz had 10 saves and sophomore Tracy Felten scored two goals. Junior Samantha Colleran had two assists, and sophomore Josie Wagner scored one goal.
After traveling to Winona Cotter Tuesday Caledonia will be back in action Thursday at home against St. Charles.
