The Broughton women's soccer team escaped Enloe last night with a dramatic 5-4 double overtime victory. The Caps took an early lead seven minutes in to the match on a goal by Emma Willard. However, the Eagles were able to find the back of the net 3 times before the halftime whistle and the Caps were down 3-1 to start the second period.
Broughton's ladies fought back to a 4-3 lead on 3 second half goals by Willard. Enloe would not give up however, and tied the score late to send the game to OT. Senior captain Caroline Brown brought the victory home for the Caps with 20 seconds left in the first OT on a goal off a corner kick by Lily Schneider. The Caps were able to hold Enloe scoreless in the second 10 minute OT to seal the win.
