It may go down in the standings as a tie, but for the Lexington girls' hockey team Wednesday's game was as good as a win. The 11th-ranked Minutemen rallied from 3-0 deficit on the road, with a pair of goals in the third period, to skate to a 3-3 tie againt No. 1 Woburn. ‘‘That game was a huge confidence booster for our team. We always play Woburn hard and play them tough and our team came to work today,'' said Lexington coach Amanda Ciarletta. Sara Lehman got Lexington (9-2-2) on the board with three minutes left in the second period off an assist from Jackie Denning. With nine minutes left in the third, Danielle Marten used a forecheck in the defensive zone to pry the puck loose before skating down the ice on a breakaway which she converted for a score. ‘‘It was a huge momentum boost. That goal came at the perfect time for us,'' said Ciarletta. Four minutes later the Minutemen won a faceoff and moved the puck around and Carolyn Avery stuffed a rebound in for the equalizer. With the game tied, the Tanners (12-0-1) became aggressive on offense but they were shut down by Lexington goalie Amanda Charlton. ‘‘Amanda held us in there in the last five minutes and I was real proud of her play,'' said Ciarletta
