TROY — Neither Northmont nor Troy could gain the upper hand Wednesday night at Troy Memorial Stadium.
Both teams remain undefeated. Northmont’s record moves to 1-0-2 while Troy is now 2-0-1.
Northmont out-shot Troy 5-1 in the first half while Troy took three shots on goal in the second half while the Lady Bolts got off two shots.
The play was rough and tumble. Hard charging Stephanie Max got banged up a bit during the game. She twisted her ankle midway through the second half, fell on her shoulder near the Troy goal and collided with a Troy player and jammed her wrist and ended up sitting out the final eight minutes of play.
Northmont got off a last second corner kick to add some excitement to the finish, but Troy players fended off the shot.
“It was frustrating, but it’s still early in the season and we’re still trying to work out some of the kinks,” said Northmont Coach Ted Mergler. “We’ve got a week here to try and figure some things out before we play Springboro. I’m confident in the girls that we can recover. It’s still not a loss. We are still undefeated so you’ve got to take the positive sometimes out of a frustrating game.”
Northmont will host Springboro in the first home game of the year on Wednesday, September 3 with the JV game kicking off at 5:30 p.m.
