ALMEDIA — Sixth-seeded Line Mountain’s improbable run to its first field hockey district championship since 2000 culminated in a most improbable way Thursday.
Sierra Bobb scored a goal off a penalty corner with no time left on the clock at the end of the first overtime period to give the Eagles a 2-1 win over top-seeded Bloomsburg, but the win was even more improbable than that goal suggests.
Bloomsburg outshot the Eagles, 16-7, and had an 11-3 edge in penalty corners, including 8-0 in the second half. In addition, things looked very dark when Bloomsburg’s Lauren Brouse finally broke a scoreless tie with just 7:36 remaining in the game.
