Greencastle 1, Shippensburg 1: Adam Murr scored to tie the game midway through the second half and that’s the way the Mid Penn Colonial clash between the Blue Devils and Greyhounds ended.
Murr’s tally was off a corner kick taken by Caleb Baine for Greencastle (2-0-1).
G-A coach Arik Bruner said, “I thought the boys battled very well tonight, in a very physical game. It was our second straight double-overtime game, so we were definitely running on adrenaline by the end of the night. Once again, they showed the heart and attitude to get back in the game after giving up a first-half goal.
“(Our goal) gave us a ton of energy. We used that energy to create some great chances the rest of the half and into overtime. We missed a penalty kick in overtime that sort of stalled the momentum. Once again, a great team effort from every player against a talented team.”
