POTSDAM — Parishville-Hopkinton’s Kodi Perkins scored the second of her two goals with less than two minutes left in the first five-minute overtime as the Panthers outlasted the Heuvelton Bulldogs for a 2-1 victory Monday.
Perkins, a junior, moved past a Heuvelton defender then pumped a low shot into the far side of the net with 1 minute, 54 seconds remaining in the first sudden death OT period to clinch the victory. Emily Sloan assisted on the game-winner and Perkins’s first goal with 20:08 left in regulation.
“Kodi has been with me on the varsity since she was a seventh-grader. She’s a real hard worker and she’s a real competitor,” said Parishville-Hopkinton coach Evan Harper, whose team will face Chateaugay in the Class D final on Thursday at Potsdam high school.
Hannah Thornhill scored for Heuvelton, which scored the game’s first goal in the second half. Parishville-Hopkinton goalie Marlee Wilson knocked away a shot by Heuvelton’s Alexis Weidner, but the ball went toward Thornhill who sent it into the net.
The Panthers (14-3-1) tied the game just 41 seconds later on Perkins’s first goal.
“We’ve had quite a few games this year where we’ve battled back to get a win,” Harper said. “The girls showed a lot of toughness coming back the way they did today.”
Wilson made nine saves for the Panthers. Morgan Keenan stopped 10 shots for the Bulldogs (13-3-1).
Parishville-Hopkinton has lost twice to Chateaugay this season, 7-1 and 4-2.
CHATEAUGAY 4, LISBON 0
Lisbon held unbeaten Chateaugay scoreless for a half, but the Bulldogs then responded with three goals within a four-minute span early in the second half to advance to the Class D championship at Potsdam.
Courtney Boyea scored Chateaugay’s first goal four minutes into the second half off a crossing pass from Hannah Cook. Boyea then converted a pass from Alexis Beach for a goal two minutes later. Beach followed with a goal off a scramble two minutes after that for the Bulldogs (18-0).
Beach added her second goal of the game with 7:48 remaining off a centering pass from Katie Beach.
Goalie Makayla Fleury stopped three shots in the shutout of the Golden Knights (11-4-2). Lisbon’s Jackie Sovie stopped 16 shots.
