Late surge lifts Greene past Oxford

Boys’ Soccer

Greene 4, Oxford 1

OXFORD – Greene turned a tight game into a comfortable win, all in the final 13 minutes of play.

Tied with the Blackhawks at one-all, Eli Marks scored at the 32:10 mark to put the Trojans in front for keeps. Mark Day added his second goal of the game and Alex Driscoll polished off the scoring. Two of the final three goals came after cornerkicks.



“We played a really good first half. It was back and forth and we played them tough,” said Oxford coach Jon Rogers. “We just had some defensive breakdowns late in the game. They came with more heart, and you can’t take anything away from them.”

Oxford took a one-goal lead into halftime when Taylor Bates tallied off a Curtis Whitehill pass.

The Blackhawks host their annual tournament Friday. Norwich and Greene play at 5 p.m., and the Blackhawks match up with G-MU at 7 p.m.
