ALMONT — Host Almont tied defending Division 3 state semifinalist Richmond, 5-5, in a Blue Water Area Conference boys' soccer battle last Wednesday afternoon.
The contest lasted 110 minutes of playing time, including a pair of scoreless overtime sessions.
With the decision, Almont goes to 7-2-1 overall and 4-2-1 as far as BWAC matchups are concerned.
"We knew coming in that we had a shot at beating them," Almont Coach Djon Camaj said. "Had it not been for a pair of opening half penalty kicks which Richmond scored on the game would not have gone to overtime," he noted.
