    Neither Walker-Hackensack-Akeley nor Crookston could muster much offense in the game as the Wolves and Pirates tied in an overtime finish.   

    The score was knotted at 0-0 going into halftime. The Wolves scored first on a perfect goal. It came from a free kick about a third of the way up the field. The ball sailed perfectly over the Crookston keeper Katelyn Wagner.    

    As the game winded down, the Pirates began pressing hard with their chances of tying the game becoming slim.    

    The drama climaxed and a little confusion came into play with under three minutes in the game. Elise Erdmann of the Pirates had kicked the ball in the net and the Pirates began their celebration. The goal, however, did not count because a blown whistle for an apparent tripping penalty just before the goal.                

    Despite the goal not counting, Crookston was still awarded a penalty kick. Hannah Emanuel took the shot and capitalized on the free shot tying the game at 1-1.    

    The game went into overtime which consists of two five minute periods of play. Neither team was able to score and the game ended in a tie.    

    The Pirates now own a 1-3-1 record and will welcome East Grand Forks on September 12. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. at the CHS soccer fields
