Onalaska scores late goal to salvage draw with Holmen

Emma Breidenbach scored the game-tying goal in the 77th minute to help Onalaska salvage a 1-1 draw with Holmen Tuesday night.

Ella Lachecki scored Holmen’s lone goal in the 34th minute. Lachecki almost scored another in the second half but was denied by Onalaska defender Kieley Erickson, who stopped Lachecki’s shot from crossing the goal line.

A deep goal kick from Onalaska took a slight backwards deflection off a Holmen attempted header, sending Kiya Bronston sprinting after the ball towards goal. Bronston’s shot hit the crossbar and rebounded back into play, where Emma Breidenbach volleyed in the second-chance goal to tie the game.

With West Salem beating Central 1-0 Tuesday night, West Salem is now in first place in the MVC with 18 points. Onalaska is in second with 17 points, Central in third at 16, and Holmen is fourth with 15 points.
