FARMINGTON – Farmington was just two minutes, 22 seconds away from potentially claiming victory, until Aztec’s Autumn Roundy found the back of the net to force a 1-1 draw Tuesday at Hutchison Stadium.
Roundy gained control of the ball from about 15-20 yards in front of the box. She managed to pull Farmington goalkeeper Jessi Curry out about 5 yards in front of the net. Roundy then cut left around Curry and scored the equalizer.
Farmington’s Eliza Merrion drew first blood just over six minutes into the second half. She broke free about 30 yards from the net receiving the ball off a pass from roughly center-pitch. She dribbled the ball right down the middle and buried it into the right corner.
