LEWISBURG - Lewisburg's Kara Koch took advantage of a green card, using the restart, to score on a breakaway to lift the Green Dragons  to 2-1 win over Selinsgrove in overtime.

It's just the fourth time the Seals have lost to a Heartland Athletic Conference foe since 2008 - three of those have come to Lewisburg at the Pawling Athletic Complex, including one in each of the last two years. Lewisburg improves to 5-1 on the season. The Seals are now 7-1.

Jess Alba put Selinsgrove on the board first, scoring off an assist from Emily Fry with 8:07 left in the second quarter. 

Koch set up the tying goal after Selinsgrove goalie Riley Batdorf made a save on a Lewisburg corner. Koch set the ball back into the circle where Rylee Dyroff tied the game with just 2:05 left in the contest.

Koch's game-winner came with 8:46 left in overtime. 

Selinsgrove led in shots (9-7) and corners (7-5). Batdorf had five saves in cage for the Seals.
