A win gone in 60 seconds

FLC saw victory, but 3 goals in the final minute said otherwise
Emma Cannis’ shot past Ellen Augsburger in the 83rd minute looked like the game-winner, until Regis scored twice in a three-goals-in-27-seconds barrage to force a 3-3 draw with Fort Lewis on Sunday.
Elena Benavides and Fort Lewis celebrated what at the time looked like a game-winning goal with 38 seconds to go Sunday, but Regis answered moments later with an equalizer in a 3-3 draw.
Amanda Raso couldn’t quite get her hands on Marissa Davis’ midfield prayer with 28 seconds left in regulation that ended a stunning 60-second sequence and forced a 3-3 draw between Regis and Fort Lewis College on Sunday at Dirks Field.
Megan Striedel got up and over a Regis defender Sunday, but Fort Lewis couldn’t quite get up and over Regis in a 3-3 draw. The Skyhawks earned a point, then the No. 5 seed in the RMAC Tournament and will travel to UC-Colorado Springs for a postseason quarterfinal.
Emma Cannis had a goal and helped Fort Lewis maintain quality stretches of possession Sunday. “I think they dominated for long periods of time,” FLC head coach Damian Clarke said. “Probably deserved a little bit more than they got out of it.”
Rachael Budagher and the Fort Lewis defense earned rave reviews this weekend. “Our coaching staff kept saying the defense was playing well, so I think it’s finally clicking where we’re getting the ball, we’re swinging it, we’re looking up, we’re confident in what we do,” center back Madyson Wellcome said.
