No. 1 Grandview and No. 2 Arapahoe tie 2-2 in battle of the best

After a second half filled with goals and two golden goal overtime periods, Colorado's two top 5A girls soccer teams tie at LPS Stadium.

It's rare the two top ranked teams meet in the regular season, but the No. 1 Grandview Wolves and No. 2 Arapahoe Warriors took the pitch on Tuesday evening at LPS Stadium for a showing between Colorado's best. 

After a scoreless first half, the Wolves netted the first goal of the game off a free kick.  

Wolves' senior Kacy Johnston hit one hard from the top of the box that sailed into the back of the net for the lead with a little more than 10 minutes into the second half. 

Grandview would net another soon after, Johnston making plays to teammates this time beat a defender to the ball worked it toward the net before connecting with Shalom Prince for the 2-0 lead in front.

The Warriors would finally get on the board at the 19:50 minute mark after Reagan Bridges fought hard in front to bury Summer Mock's corner kick. Bridges goal brought life to the team spurring more energy that eventually lead to a chance minutes later. 

The Wolves now up 2-1, Warriors were given a big opportunity late in the final frame when Grandview was called for a handball inside the box off a Warriors shot.

Mock took the kick for the Warriors and succeeded. Her game-tying goal sent the two teams into overtime where neither team could earn the win ending the game in a 2-2 tie. 

Grandview face another top team, the No. 4 Cherry Creek Bruins on Thursday, while Arapahoe faces a struggling Smoky Hill the same day.
