Reed boys rally to tie Douglas


Reed converted two long shots inside the final seven minutes to pull out a 3-3 tie at home against Douglas.

Douglas scored three times in the first half to take a 3-1 lead, but still had to settle for a tie in the non-league contest.

"We were able to control the ball, I'd say 60 percent of the time," coach Phil Sheridan said. "All of their shots came from 25 to 30 yards out, unfortunately, they scored on a couple of those at the end."

Sheridan said the Raiders scored their last two goals, one with about seven minutes left to play and the other with about one minute to play, on shots from about 30 yards out.

Reed took a 1-0 lead with a goal in the opening two minutes of play, but Douglas came back with three unanswered scores before halftime.

Jason Cohee tied it 1-1 and Justin Norvelle's goal gave the Tigers a 2-1 lead. Iain Dunbar scored the third goal when he came from his outside halfback position to collect a throw-in from Nic Beres and drilled a 25-yarder into the net.

Sheridan was pleased with the Tigers' performance on the defensive end from sweeper Justin Bunkelburg and marking fullbacks Jeff Spencer and Kyle Carney. Goalkeeper Chase Zumpft was credited with 19 saves.

In the JV contest, Reed scored three times in the second half to post a 3-0 victory. Sweeper Justin Grimm joined center midfielders Michael Gransbery and Nick Cohee to play well for Douglas. Goalkeeper Steve Done was credited with eight saves.

The Tigers return to action Saturday against Lowry in Winnemucca.
