The Lady Indians scored in the first overtime before Thomas answered for Gloversville in the second overtime to tie the game.

Caroline Bakyta scored thee goals for Gloversville (1-11-1 overall, 1-9-1 Foothills), while Emma Botch and Katie LeFever each had an assist.

"This was a total team effort today, after losing to Glens Falls 8-2 up at their place, we came out ready to play," Hallenbeck said. "Thomas and Bakyta really played well together today, setting each other up with quality goal scoring opportunists."

Miranda Haraughty scored six goals and had an assist to lead Glens Falls (3-7-1 Foothills), while Rachel Vanderminden also scored.

Alexis Capasso made 20 saves for the Lady Dragons.

"I thought my girls showed a lot of heart after losing the two-goal lead at the half, and also being down two goals late in the second half," Hallenbeck said. "They never stopped believing and kept fighting. That says a lot about this team, especially because this season has not gone the way we had envisioned, but the girls kept fighting, and I can't even put into words how proud I am of them."

Gloversville will travel to Scotia-Glenville on?Monday for a 4:30 p.m. contest.
