New York Mills 3, S-E 2
NEW YORK MILLS – A late push over the final 15 minutes was not enough for the Marauders in a defeat at New York Mills Tuesday.
Rachel Seroun and Kayla Sadlah had one goal and one assist leading the host team to a 3-0 lead.
Sam Crandall scored for S-E at 13:09, and although the Marauders kept the pressure on, managed just one more goal. Karli Harris tallied with seven seconds left on the clock. “We played really well most of the time, but we had some mental lapses that cost us goals,” said S-E coach Sheila Cooman. “We really dominated the last 15 minutes, and we definitely did not roll over in this game.”
