S-E 5, Hamilton 0
SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville scored four goals within a four-minute span in the final 10 minutes of its shutout victory over Hamilton Monday.
Karli Harris scored the first of her two goals deflecting a Courtney Kurtz pass into the cage just five minutes into the second half. The contest remained a one-goal difference until Kurtz started a four-goal barrage at the 9:48 mark and ended at 5:56.
“I was telling the girls that the one-goal lead wasn’t enough,” said S-E coach Sheila Cooman in recounting a second-half timeout. “Anything can happen in field hockey, and Hamilton has a fast team. All they needed to do was sneak by one time.”
Samantha Crandall and Amanda Morgan added S-E goals, who improved to 3-1-1 overall. The Marauders host Morrisville-Eaton Wednesday.

Otselic Valley 5, Brookfield 1

Taylor Duell scored once in each half, and Shawn Hillman, Landon Rasmussen along with David Cerasani added goals for the Vikings (1-4). “We have had a lot of trouble scoring goals and numerous chances,” said OV coach Dave Loomis. “Today we distributed the ball well into open space, kept the shots down, and put them in. It sounds simple, but that’s what happened.”
