HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Kelly Innis scored two goals, including the game-winner in the second overtime, as Hasbrouck Heights defeated Wood-Ridge, 3-2, on Senior Night at Depken Field.  Wood-Ridge had tied the game with 6:28 on a goal by Emily Gardella to send the game to overtime. 

Innis scored the game's first goal, nearly seven minutes into the second half, following a scoreless first 40 minutes.   Wood-Ridge tied the score six minutes later on a goal that was credited to Natalie Cala after Hasbrouck Heights mishandled a goal in their own end.  

Heights bounced back as Rebecca Beerman put one past Wood-Ridge goalkeeper Angela Picheo for a 2-1 Lady Aviator lead with 21 minutes gone in the half.  The Blue Devils bounced back once again, with Emily Gardella scooting one around Heights goalkeeper Emma Nichols to tie the game, with less than six minutes remaining in the game.

Innis goal came with about two minutes remaining in the second overtime.
