On a hot afternoon at Nichols Field, Sewickley Academy tied Quigley Catholic in an emotional battle. A scoreless and uneventful first half led to a physical and highly contested second half. Lekha Amin beautifully headed in the first goal of the game off a driven corner kick. There was a sense that this single goal would be enough to win, but then with the clock ticking down inside three minutes, Quigley scored to tie the game 1-1. Sewickley dominated both overtime periods, but was unable to put it away. Sewickley moves to 5-1-2 with the tie.
