The Essex girls soccer team fell to Mt. Anthony in heartbreaking fashion last Saturday, dropping its season opener 3-2 in overtime.
Down 2-1 with less than a minute to play, Essex’s Emma Whitney connected a cross to Maddy Young, who net the game-tying goal with under 10 seconds to play, forcing overtime.
Two minutes in, Mt. Anthony scored to steal the Hornets’ season-opener.
Essex looked for the first win of its fall campaign when it traveled to Burr and Burton on Wednesday in a game that concluded after The Reporter went to print. The Hornets will then host Rutland on Saturday.
