Thanks to a first-half goal by Kelley Alpaugh, the Pioneers (6-2-1) appeared to have the victory in hand. But Kelsey Long of Eastern (6-2) tied it with eight seconds left in regulation.
The deciding score came when a shot by Clearview’s Mackenzie Landon deflected off a defender and into the Vikings’ net. The goalies — Deana Wood of Eastern and Clearview’s Lauren West — combined for 27 saves.
