It took 60 minutes for someone to find the net, and 80 still didn’t solve much in a 1-1 tie Saturday between Wawasee and East Noble in varsity boys soccer.
Wawasee hit the scoreboard first, with Austin Shrack taking a pass from Ricky Camargo in the 60th minute and finding the back of the net for Shrack’s third goal of the season.
East Noble would counter in the 70th minute off a free kick to knot the score at one, where it would stay the final 10 minutes.
Wawasee moves its record to 4-3-4 this season while East Noble settles in at 4-7-1.
The Warriors will play again Tuesday in a key Northern Lakes Conference match at Goshen.
