Douglas High needed a win to get back on top of the Sierra League but could only manage a 2-2 tie with first place South Tahoe on Saturday in Minden.

The Vikings went up 1-0 but goals by Hannah Sullivan and Britney Christen gave the Tigers a 2-1 halftime lead. South Tahoe got the equalizer three minutes into the second half and then the game got a bit out of control. Douglas' Rebecca Wallstrum left the game and was eventually taken to the hospital, according to Fred Schmidt.

"It was really a hard fought game," Schmidt said. "We were playing really well for a while. It was a little frustrating because we knew we had to beat them to get tied for first place. But I was real proud of the girls. We were obviously at their level."

The Tigers are now 5-1-1 in league and 7-2-1 overall. South Tahoe, which beat Douglas 2-0 last month, keeps hold of first place with a 6-0-1 league record and stays three points ahead of second place Douglas. The Tigers play Wooster on Tuesday.
