They played their hearts out.
As a brilliant sunset faded on a darkening field in Terre Noire, the Cape Breton Highlands Huskies celebrated a hard-fought victory over the NDA Aigles to capture the Nova Scotia School Athletic Federation Division 3 girls soccer title on Monday.
Tied 1-1 after 90 minutes of regulation time, Huskies striker Lydia Fraser scored in the first minute of overtime and then her teammates played keep-away for the next 29 minutes to secure a 2-1 victory.
It was the first time in an undefeated season that the Huskies were scored on, which didn’t go unnoticed by coach Aurel LeLièvre.
