Everything you missed in high school sports — and isn’t elsewhere in the CDT — from Tuesday:

Harris made 13 saves in goal.
“I have never seen a group of girls play harder for 100 minutes than I did tonight,” Lady Eagles coach Jared Moore said. “I told them it would be a defensive grinder and that we would have to make good on our opportunities. I thought we had some good chances and just couldn't get one in the net.
“Charlee Harris was great in goal. She made four or five key saves late in the game and in overtime to keep us in it.”
The Lady Scarlet Dragons’ Blair Miller saved all three of the shots she faced.
