Havelock rallies to win heated battle over D.H. Conley.

“I was very frustrated and I didn’t know if we were going to be able to come back,” Johnson said. “Once Ali scored that one goal, we got our rally going and everybody started to step up.”

Then came overtime, and a physical extra session at that.

Just four minutes into the first 10-minute segment of overtime, Havelock’s Lauren Seegel was ripped to the ground by her ponytail by Conley’s Olivia Sandy.

Both Sandy and Seegel received red cards. Three minutes later, a Viking player crashed into Wickman, forcing Havelock’s leader out of the match.

But with 30 seconds remaining in the first overtime session, Johnson came through with the eventual game-winning goal.

“It was making me a little mad, and with the red card, I was upset (Sandy) decided to do that on our field,” Johnson said. “I felt bad for Lauren because she wasn’t expecting that.”

The Havelock defense, led by goalkeeper Amanda Alexander, along with Emily Spink, Aliyah Cruz, Janae Mays and Kaitlin Tripp held D.H. Conley without a shot in the second overtime period.
