Oxford regroups to beat Deposit

Field Hockey

Oxford 4, Deposit 3

OXFORD Oxford regrouped after back-to-back tournament losses over the weekend, but not before regathering itself in an overtime victory over Deposit Monday.

Following a missed penalty stroke that would have won the game a few minutes earlier in overtime, Amanda Marks reverse-sticked a deflection after a Marlena Frank drive to win the game with just over 1:30 left.



Oxford jumped on Deposit early scoring three goals in the first half to lead by two goals. Lacey Barry, Frank, and Daisy Murphy accounted for the early advantage. Im disappointed we let them back into the game, but I was proud of the way we fought back and won, said Oxford coach Melissa Chrystie, whose club evened its record at 2-2. Weve had trouble generating offense, so it was good to come out in the first half and put shots on goal.

Oxford hosts Sidney Wednesday.
