Lebanon County HS Highlights - Sept. 28
Game of the Day
Elco field hockey 1, Northern Lebanon 0 (OT)
One team was struggling for wins, the other was not. But all of that went out the window on Wednesday when county rivals Elco and Northern Lebanon got together on the field hockey field.
Struggling Northern Lebanon pushed Section Three contender Elco to the wall and then some before dropping a 1-0 overtime decision in Fredericksburg.
Emily Witmer brought the contest to an end at 9:22 of the OT off an assist from Hannah Williams, but not before the Vikings had given quite an account of themselves behind nine saves in goal from Hannah Whitman.
