ST. MARYS, Pa. – In their ‘Pink Out’ game, the St. Marys Lady Dutch got two goals from Gabby Pistner in a 4-2 win over crosstown rival Elk County Catholic on Thursday.
Pistner got the Lady Dutch on the board just over 13 minutes into the game off a Gianna Surra corner kick, only to watch as the Lady Crusaders tied the game less than a minute later on a Rylie Belsole goal.
The scoring came fast and furious for St. Marys, as Lucy Hays got behind the defense and was able to beat keeper Allison Geci for a goal to make it 2-1 with 16:21 to go in the half.
Less than a minute later, it was the freshman Pistner who made it 3-1 with her second goal of the game.
Pistner was named the Allegheny Grille of Foxburg Player of the Game and talked about the win afterward:
That 3-1 score held until 16:40 to go in the second half, when Seanna VanAlstine scored for Elk County Catholic to make it 3-2.
The Lady Crusaders seemingly had all the momentum, but St. Marys had a quick counter that resulted in an Anna Lundin goal with less than 10 minutes to go that put the game out of reach.
Rewatch the game:
It was the second win this season for St. Marys over ECC.
Olivia Eckles was credited with 20 stops for St. Marys and Geci 12 for ECC.
