DURANT -- For the first 66 minutes of the region championship, neither Durant and Palm Harbor University scored.

Then at 66:24, Annie Stulzer took a short pass from Kaylyn Smith 10 yards from the center and kicked the ball over the head of Cougar goalie Megan Bowers for the Hurricanes' first goal.

With about 12 minutes left in regulation, Durant coach Dick Sheffield moved senior midfielder/defender Colleen Feeney up as a third forward for the Cougars.

A couple minutes later, Feeney blasted a free kick from just outside the box through a wall of Palm Harbor defenders past the Hurricanes keeper.

"I couldn't see through the wall, it looked like two layers," Feeney said. "I just kicked it low and hard. I don't know how it got through."

The late Cougar goal tied the score 1-all and sent the match into overtime, when Durant secured a 2-1 win in the second five-minute period.

"We didn't have anything to lose by pushing Colleen up front for a three-forward attack," Sheffield said. "We were down 1-0 and needed some goals. It worked, so I left her up front for the rest of the match."

In the first overtime, Palm Harbor was back on its heels but kept the Cougars out of the goal.

The Durant attack was relentless in the second overtime and at 1:10, Feeney scored her second goal on a pass from K.K. Kelly.

Each team had seven shots on goal, and Stulzer made the most of them for Palm Harbor. The freshman broke through the Cougars defensive line several times to make a run at the net or pass to a teammate.
