Oxford Tournament

Marathon 6, Oxford 2

Greene 8, Whitesboro 1

OXFORD – Marathon did not need overtime as it did last year in capturing the Blackhawks’ tournament title Saturday evening.

Kaitlyn Bliss and Marta Malmberg had a pair of goals, and Tessa Knapp added a tally giving her four over the two-day tournament to pace the Olympians over the host club.

Marathon picked up the offense with four second-half goals.

Christi Baker and Erin Law scored unassisted for Oxford, who dropped to 2-3 on the season.

Greene, coming off a tight loss to Marathon the previous evening (3-2), routed Whitesboro as Holly Davis scored three goals and Andrea Day finished with her second two-goal game of the tournament.



Oxford advanced to the final with a 4-1 victory over Whitesboro.

S-E Tournament

V-V-S 2, S-E 0

SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville was better in defeat to lose the title game than it was in defeating Moravia the night before to reach the S-E tourney finals, said head coach Sheila Cooman.

“We did not play very well against Moravia Friday and they beat us in every tally except goals scored,” Cooman said. “Even though we lost to V-V-S again, we played much, much better. We moved the ball and worked together better. It’s ironic the stats don’t show that.”

V-V-S’s two goals came two minutes apart in the opening half. Mary Schilling had the opening goal and Mallory Mariano added insurance.
