Little Falls overcame an early 2-0 deficit to gain a 3-3 tie at Hillcrest Lutheran Academy, Monday.
Down 2-0, freshman Ellie Riitters knocked a corner from junior Katie Yorek into the net with nine minutes remaining in the first half for the Flyers’ first goal of the season.
Little Falls capitalized on the momentum going into the second half, as freshman Jordan Schuett scored off a steal only 85 seconds in to knot the game at 2-2.
The Cadets regained the lead with 14 minutes to play, but eighth grader Chelsea Moran set up Schuett’s second goal of the game four minutes later to give the Flyers the draw.
Little Falls plays at Princeton, Tuesday, Sept. 4.
