fell 4-3 to visiting Byram Hills on
Sept. 28. e Bobcats scored the
decisive goal in the rst overtime.
“ e key to the comeback was
just our work rate and expecta-
tions,” Nuttall said. “We know we
did not play our best in the rst
half which put us in a tough situa-
tion at halftime. I said to the girls,
‘We put ourselves in this situation
and now we have no option but
to get out of it.’ And that was the
expectation for the second half, to
bring the game back. We knew
we could play better and create
chances and we had to go for it.”
DiGuglielmo was at it again,
leading the Indians with two
goals. DiChiara also scored.
