Both teams had a couple of scoring opportunities in the overtime period, but the match would end in a 1-1 tie.
“It was a hard fought match from our team,” head coach Pete Cuadrado said. “I was proud of the grit with the level of physicality Montana presented. Kuddos to our team, I felt like we had chances in the second half to score a goal. We kept fighting until the end and got one late with time winding down. It showed that we kept battling as a team has and we can use moving forward. Even in overtime, I thought we created some good opportunities.”
