Durant surges past Palm Harbor in OT

DURANT -- Colleen Feeney scored a goal late in regulation to tie and another in the second overtime period to clinch Durant's 2-1 victory over Palm Harbor University.

For 66 minutes, the two teams battled tooth and nail with a pair of zeros glaring on the scoreboard.

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

With 12 minutes remaining in regulation and facing a stacked Hurricane defense, Durant coach Dick Sheffield moved senior midfielder/defender Feeney up as a third forward.

It took only a couple of minutes before Feeney blasted a free kick from just outside the box. The ball went low through a wall of Palm Harbor defenders into the net.

"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."

The Durant attack was relentless in the second overtime period and at one minute, 10 seconds of that stanza, Feeney received a pass from K.K. Kelly to score a second goal from just a few feet outside the goal mouth.

Each team made only seven shots on goal and Stulzer had most of them for Palm Harbor. Although only a freshman, her ball control was some of the best of the night, as she broke through the Cougar defensive line several times to make a run at the net or pass to a teammate.

"I am really proud of my girls tonight and for the season," Palm Harbor coach Holly Freeman said.
