Lights out! Farmington soccer match ends in tie

FARMINGTON – The Farmington Knights hosted a very talented Cape Notre Dame team on Wednesday. While the game was very exciting, some unexpected drama occurred at the new Richardson Field. The transformer for the lighting system went out and caused the lights to malfunction. The game was tied 2-2 as the first overtime began, but the lights went out for the second time of the night as the contest ended in a rare tie.

Notre Dame scored first in the 18th minute, but Farmington’s Ross Wulfert was assisted by Brad Green and Lucas Vogelsang as Wulfert tied the game at the 25th-minute mark. Derek DiFabio set up Chad Vessell for the Knights’ second goal to take the lead in the 54th minute. Notre Dame scored again at the 64th-minute mark to tie the game before the field went pitch black in overtime.

Jordan Pannett stopped eight of Notre Dame’s 10 shots. Pannett also made three amazing saves that could have changed the outcome of the game. The Knights matched Notre Dame’s shot count.

Farmington (4-0-1) will visit Poplar Bluff on Monday.
