The Panthers equaled the hornet sting

            Lyndonville, Vt. – The Plymouth State men's soccer team rallied late in the second half to a 2-2 double overtime tie with the Lyndon State College Hornets.  After a scoreless first half the Hornets would strike first with a pair of goals early in the second half.  The Panthers would answer in the 70th minute with a goal by Erik Ljunglof (Orebro, SWE), and then again by Nick Rutherford (Sydney, AUS) to tie it up at 74:17.  Moving into overtime both teams showed promise with several moves on the net, but neither team was able to sneak anything by the Panther or Hornet goalkeepers leaving the match deadlocked.
