Westville, Marquette girls draw

Riley Lindsey's goal in the 73rd minute erased a 3-2 deficit and enabled Marquette to earn a 3-3 draw at Westville on Saturday. Lindsey had a pair of goals while Janaya Blakely also made her way into the scoring column.

Freshman keeper Sydney Burroughs kept the Blackhawks off the scoreboard over the final 44-plus minutes, accounting for 25 saves in the process.

Despite competing with just nine players in the second half, Marquette finally broke through with less than eight minutes to play when Maddie Rowley fed Lindsey for the match-tying goal.

Chloe Fortune, Grace Shebel and Kaylee Bowley scored for Westville with Bowley and Mia Francis picking up assists. Maddie Stark made nine saves.

Adams edges LP

A penalty kick in the dying minutes of the first half accounted for the only goal in South Bend Adams' 1-0 boys soccer win over La Porte on Saturday.
