The last time Briarcliff played Westlake, it won by 11 goals. Suffice it to say, trailing by six in the second half wasn’t part of the gameplan.
“We just came out really flat and dug ourselves into a hole,” Briarcliff coach Diane Haddeland said. “We didn’t really start playing until the second half.”
In a wild game, the visiting Bears scored seven straight to take their first lead before Westlake’s Tori Oswald scored in the final seconds to finish a 13-13 tie.
Briarcliff’s Jordan Riccardi had scored with 40 seconds left to give her team a 13-12 lead. She finished with four goals and one assist and Jordana Cohen had three goals.
Holzer had three goals and Stephanie Mele added two goals and three assists for Westlake.
Holzer scored the tying goal after a foul in the final seconds. Briarcliff won the ensuing draw, was fouled and sprung free on a breakaway, but time expired.
“If we had like six more seconds on the clock, I think we could’ve won,” Haddeland said.
