Monticello erased deficits in the final minute of regulation and overtime to force the Flyers to settle for a 2-2 road tie, Saturday.
Little Falls opened the scoring in the 16th minute when sophomore Thomas Bell set up senior Nathan Masog for a goal off of a corner kick.
The Flyers maintained that 1-0 edge deep into the second half, but the Magic forced extra time with a game-tying goal with 45 seconds to play.
Little Falls regained the lead three minutes into overtime when Bell earned his second assist on a goal by sophomore Connor Jorgensen, only for Monticello to stave off defeat with its final goal with 49 seconds remaining.
