KINGSTON - Things looked bleak for most of the game for the Selinsgrove field hockey team.

The Seals didn't generate a shot or a corner in the first half on the road against Wyoming Valley West on Saturday afternoon.

The only thing keeping them in the game - sophomore goalie Mazzie Teats.

However, the Seals still trailed until late in the second half when they scored two goals in a 35 second span with less than five minutes  left to claim a 2-1 win over Wyoming Valley West.

Ariane Rupnik gave Wyoming Valley West the 1-0 lead with 26:08 left in the game, but Maddie Bucher tied it for Selinsgrove off an assist from Jess Alba with 4:06 left in the game.

Alba then scored the game winner with 3:29 left in the game off an assist from Olivia Reichley.

Teats finished the game with 15 saves.
