Brewster tops Tigers in overtime

TONASKET – Brewster scored a controversial golden goal in overtime to defeat the  Tonasket girls soccer team 2-1 in a Caribou Trail League match on Tuesday, Oct. 26.

Brewster was awarded a penalty kick about two minutes into the first “golden goal” overtime period after a collision near the top of the box. Tigers goalkeeper Baylie Tyus knocked away the ensuing penalty kick, but the Bears jumped on the rebound and knocked it in for the game-winner.

Tonasket coach Darren Collins, frustrated at the call, was red-carded after the game ended and will have to serve a one-game suspension, missing the Saturday’s game at Cashmere.

The Tigers led at halftime on Kylie Dellinger’s goal, with Alicia Edwards picking up the assist.

Tonasket controlled most of the action until Brewster tied the game midway through the second half.

Tyus finished with six saves.
