Coming from behind twice, the Albion girls U17 team rallied to earn a 3-3 tie with visiting Batavia this afternoon in a Rochester District Youth Soccer League game.

Trailing 2-0 at the half, Albion battled back to knot the contest on early second half goals by Aubrey Lewis and Vivian Rivers.

Batavia regained a 3-2 lead but again Albion came battling back, this time on a goal by Anna Lewis to gain the tie.

Now at 1-1-2, Albion next visits Batavia in a rematch on Friday.
