Soccer: Thunder girls in 2-2 stalemate with Becker

The Zimmerman Thunder couldn’t hold a 2-0 halftime lead and wound up tying the Becker Bulldogs 2-2 in overtime on Tuesday at Becker.

Freshman Brooke Salo scored in the third minute on a well-played through ball from Allison Giese. Then senior Flor Magaria scored in the 35th minute, finishing on a corner kick from Tara Bakken as she hit the far corner from 18 yards out.

Becker tied the score on second-half goals by Sarah Peabody and Anna Perry. The Becker goalkeeper, Emily Wolf, made some tough saves, including  one on a hard shot by Kendra Kraabel near the end of the second overtime.

Abbie Canton, Zimmerman freshman, played her first full varsity game at goalkeeper. Coach Jeff Downing blamed a lack of communication for the tying goals by Becker.

Zimmerman (1-4) will host St. John’s Prep on Thursday at 5 p.m.
