Homer comeback bid denied

Staff Writer

Maggie Ryan scored with 5:13 left in the second half to break an 11-11 tie and put visiting Auburn in the lead for good during a girls’ lacrosse non-league match-up with Homer Central on a chilly Friday night.
Ryan’s third goal of the night gave the Maroons a 12-11 lead before Anna Spin scored an empty net goal with 15 seconds remaining to seal the 13-11 triumph and spoil a nice comeback bid by the host Trojans in the season opener for both teams on George Butts Field.
