After Wednesday's disappointing one-goal loss to Roland Park, Notre Dame Prep was more than happy to emerge from Garrison Forest yesterday with a 10-10 tie.

"It's a great tie," said Pirates defender Stephanie Petterson. "Coming off the Roland Park game, this really boosted our confidence, especially the way we came back."

The No. 8 Pirates rallied from two goals down in the final minute and a half to pull even. Their defense then held off the No. 2 Grizzlies, who missed a couple of close-range shots in the last 12 seconds.

"It was a bit of a test for them," said NDP coach Mary Bartel. "When I called that timeout [with 1: 45 to go], I let them have it. They had a choice. They could have crumbled, but what they chose to do was play the way they know how. That to me was a victory in and of itself."

The tie was fitting since neither team managed to get the upper hand in the AIS A Division non-league game. The score was tied eight times, including five times in a first half that ended 5-5.

Petterson's eight-meter shot broke a 7-7 tie with 5: 35 left, but Garrison (8-1-1) answered with the biggest run of the game -- three in a row.

Tricia Ward made a slippery move one-on-one to tie with 3: 36 left. Then Cantey Boyd snared a high pass from Lauren Klein and made a spin move for a 9-8 lead.

Boyd nearly made it two in a row, but when she fired her next shot over the goal, Klein ran it down about 20 yards off to the side. She quickly looped a long pass to Jacque Weitzel all alone in front of the goal to put the Grizzlies up 10-8 with 1: 30 left.

"I really thought we had it," said Ward, "but I think what happened was our defense was all moved around and we left half the field open."

Kate Kaiser sparked the comeback for the Pirates (7-2-1). She grabbed the next draw and ran straight to goal, cutting Garrison's lead to one with 1: 22 to go.

Garrison's Melissa Harrison won the next draw, but the Grizzlies quickly turned it over. NDP's Maggy Kilroy came up with the loose ball and lobbed it 40 yards ahead to Lacey Aumiller. When Aumiller's shot carried wide, Sheehan Stanwick came up with it in traffic and was fouled. On the eight-meter shot, Stanwick scored her fourth goal of the game to tie with 33 seconds remaining.

NDP goalie Mary Beth Laverghetta finished with 12 saves, while Garrison's Chrissy Cooper had 10 stops.
