Though entering their Nov. 1 Class C semifinal matchup against Pawling as the favorites, the Bronxville Broncos suffered a rare loss against the Tigers, losing in a wild shootout period that ended Bronxville’s hopes for another section title.
It seemed as though the Broncos were headed towards a regulation win with time running out as goals from Lily Grass and Ellie Walsh had the Broncos up with less than three minutes to play.
But with 2:06 to go, Pawling’s Izzy Grillo tied the game up, pushing the Broncos into two scoreless overtime periods. In the shootout, Bronxville took an early lead off an Ellie Walsh goal, but Pawling was able to respond with three straight conversions to bury the Broncos.
Bronxville ends the season with a 10-5-2 record, while Pawling earned the right to take on North Salem on Nov. 5 for the Class C title.
