Hemphill got the Mountaineers (1-1-4) on the board early when he took a cross from Matthew Melton and headed in the first goal in the eighth minute of action. The Bisons (3-2-1) answered just nine minutes later when Like Gearin converted a penalty kick.
Less than three minutes later, Hemphill would head in his second goal with the help of Melton yet again, to put the Apps up 2-1. The lead would hold for 21 minutes until the Bisons drew even when a Mountaineer mistake led to an own goal.
Neither squad was able to find the back of the net in the second half or either overtime period, as the Apps picked up a draw for the second-straight match. Hemphill led all players with four shots while Melton, Harrison Delbridge and Alex Herbst each had two. Geiran and Scout Monteith led the Bisons with two shots on goal, as Lipscomb finished with a 17-14 edge in shots.
Danny Free (1-1-4) picked up the decision for the Apps while making five stops on the day. The Mountaineers finished with six corners while the Bisons had 12 and committed 13 fouls to Lipscomb's 17. Appalachian State will return to action on Sunday at 1 p.m. when it takes on Belmont to wrap up its weekend in Music City USA.
