Never miss a local story.
Garfield took a 1-0 lead in the fourth minute of the game on a 35-yard strike by Peyton Menti. The Bulldogs had a free kick near midfield but instead of shooting at the goal, passed the ball wide to Menti, who drilled a shot that went into the upper left corner of the goal.
Peninsula tied the game early in the second half with help from a set piece. The shot landed in the box where the Seahawks’ Drew Ramsey corralled it, then passed the ball to Maynor Martinez, who slotted in the equalizer.
Neither team would score in regulation or in the two 5 minute overtime periods although both had chances. Garfield goalie Brian Doherty made a diving save on a penalty kick by Mason Haubrich to preserve the tie with 24 minutes to go in regulation.
