S-E 5, Sauquoit Valley 3
SAUQUOIT – Sherburne-Earlville did all of its scoring in the final 10 minutes of each half rallying twice to overcome a stiff challenge from Sauquoit Valley Wednesday.
“They were fast and skilled...they surprised us tonight,” said S-E coach Sheila Cooman of the Indians.
Down two goals, S-E senior Danielle Green started the first-half rally at 9:15 scoring on a direct hit off a penalty corner from Betsy Lewis. Green forced a halftime tie with two minutes remaining in the half, again in extended action after a penalty corner.
SV posted the first goal of the second half, and took that lead into the 10-minute mark when, Karli Harris had the first of her two goals to tie the game for S-E. Harris moved the Marauders ahead for the first time at 1:07 getting a pass from Green, and Samantha Crandall added an insurance goal just before time expired. “We really showed what we were made of to come back like that. It was a gutsy performance,” Cooman said. “It was a big win because it was a league win. We already have one league loss, so we can’t afford to lose another.”
The Marauders (3-1, 5-2) host Mohawk Friday.

Oxford 1, Harpursville 1
OXFORD – Oxford suffered the first blemish on its Section IV Division II record in a tie with Harpursville Wednesday.
Hannah Kimmel scored the equalizing goal for the Hornets with just 5:17 left in regulation. The Blackhawks controlled play throughout the sudden-victory period, but were unable to score. “We didn’t get any corners until the overtime period,” said Oxford coach Missy Chrystie. “They were able to clear the ball out and we weren’t aggressive enough in the circle. We dominated the first half but came out flat in the second half. We picked it up again, and then they scored the tying goal.”
