Frndak scores twice, leads Lady Bulldogs to 3-2 OT win

LINESVILLE — For the second match in a row, the Meadville girls soccer team rallied from a two-goal deficit on its way to a victory. This time, the Lady Bulldogs did it against Conneaut, downing the Eagles in a 3-2 overtime thriller on Tuesday.

Conneaut (0-1-0) powered out of the gate with two goals inside of the first 11 minutes. First, Keri Scott punched one in just three and a half minutes into the game. And Jillian White made it 2-0 under seven minutes later, getting an assist from Brooke Phelps.

Meadville, however, fought back, scoring back-to-back goals under a minute apart. Ellie Holmgren got the Lady Bulldogs on the board with the clock at 21:18. Then 57 seconds later, Abigail Frndak knocked in the game-tying score.

After a goal-filled first half, the two teams were blanked in the second. There was some good worked turned in by both goalkeepers, which included Meadville’s Alexandra Smith (five saves) and Conneaut’s Monica Farley (13 saves).

The match wouldn’t stay quiet for much longer.

Six minutes into overtime, Frndak struck again

“It was actually kind of fun to watch,” said Meadville head coach Allen Moore. “(Frndak) dribbled past two defenders and put it in the upper corner just out of the goalie’s reach. It was just the perfect spot at the perfect time.”

The match-winning goal has Meadville off to a 2-0-0 start to the year.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
