Oxford dominates in overtime

Field Hockey

Oxford 2, Walton 1 (OT)

OXFORD – Oxford set up a showdown with Section IV Division II leader Afton beating Walton in overtime Monday afternoon.

Christi Baker’s shot rebounded off the goalie’s pads to mate Jenna Farwell, who neatly placed the ball in the cage for the victory with four minutes left in overtime. “We came out and dominated in the overtime period,” said Oxford coach Missy Chrystie. “They slowed the game down in the first half and we were kind of playing in slow motion. It was a nice chain of events that led to our winning goal.”



Baker scored for Oxford (11-4-2) in the second half, who play at Afton Thursday.
