SOUTH POINT — The South Point Pointers achieved their goal, and then again, they didn’t.

The Pointers nearly executed their game plan but had to settle for a 2-2 tie in a soccer game with the Ashland Tomcats on Tuesday.

“Our primary goal was to keep Hunter Gullett under control. He’s the fastest player we’ve seen,” said Pointers’ coach Zane Joy.

“We did a good job most of the game. We played a good first half, but we had our lapses in the second half. Overall, it was an evenly matched game.”

Jordan Overstreet scored on a penalty kick at the 25-minute mark of the first half to give the Pointers a 1-0 lead.

Overstreet had an unassisted goal at the 56:00 mark of the second half and the lead was 2-0.

But Gullett got an unassisted goal at the 58:00 mark and then scored with an assist from Andre Donalson three minutes later to tie the game.

South Point goalie Eli Lucas had 10 saves. Dillon Lucas had 8 stops for Ashland (7-5-1).

South Point (4-5-2) hosts Fairland Thursday with a girls’ game at 5:30 p.m. followed by the boys’ game.

Ashland 0 2 = 2
