MARDELA SPRINGS — The Colonel Richard­son High girls’ soc­cer team played to a 1-1, dou­ble-over­time tie Thurs­day against Mardela.

Caro­line New­comb scored Colonel’s lone goal on a sweet feed through the box from Macken­zie Covey for a 1-0, first-half lead in the 34th minute. Mardela tied the score 4 min­utes later on a goal by Caeleigh Schirner.

The Colonels (0-1-1) con­trolled the pace for much of the first half. Skyla But­ler, Sarah Gil­lispie and New­comb kept the War­riors from ad­vanc­ing much past mid­field. The trio con­trolled loose balls and fed Clara Div­jak and Covey to be­gin the tran­si­tion game.

Div­jak used her speed on the right wing to stretch the de­fense, open­ing holes for Covey. Three times Covey had shots saved in the first half.

Just be­fore half­time, Covey gained pos­ses­sion on a loose ball in the mid­dle of the box. Rather than shoot through traf­fic, Covey dropped a pass to a wide open New­comb, who con­nected with a cross­ing shot into the back of the net for her first ca­reer high school goal and a 1-0 lead.

“Macken­zie can play with any­body in our league,” Colonel head coach Thomas Hum­mel said. “She looked up, saw Caro­line and made a great pass that led to a goal.

“Caro­line played ver y well to­day,” Hum­mel added. “She is go­ing to be here for four years. For her to have suc­cess here ear­lier will lead to great things out of her for sure.”

Schirner’s goal was just un­der the cross­bar, leav­ing Colonel Richard­son goalie Cas­sidy Stubbs lit­tle chance to make a play.

Stubbs kept the Colonel tied through the game with nine to­tal saves — seven in the se­cond half and over­times. Four times, Stubbs needed to make slid­ing saves.

In the eighth minute of the first over­time, Mardela earned a cor­ner kick. Schirner gath­ered a loose ball on the kick and shot to­ward the left post, but Stubbs slid to stop the shot from go­ing in.

“We are blessed to have Cas­sidy in goal,” Hum­mel said. “She is a good ath­lete, and does a great job in goal. She made key saves for us to pre­serve the tie.”

Mardela (0-2-1) is sched­uled to host James M. Ben­nett at 3 p.m. Tues­day, Colonel is sched­uled to host Kent County at 5:15 p.m. the same day.
