Morris 3, G-MU 0
GILBERTSVILLE – Morris capitalized on three G-MU defensive mistakes, all three mistakes led to Justin Utter goals in the Mustangs’ shutout victory Tuesday.
Utter picked up a rebound off a missed shot, and scored his first goal at 35:20. The next two goals came when Utter ran onto a loose ball insde the G-MU 18, beat a Raiders defender one-on-one, and scored past G-MU keeper Andrew Delmar. Utter completed his hat trick after a cornerkick. Utter gathered a loose ball when G-MU failed to clear the ball out of its defensive zone, and tucked the ball away.
“We had a few mistakes on our part, and they capitalized,” said Raiders coach Mark Luettger. “The good thing is that we were still playing hard and (our team) didn’t give up. That’s always a positive.”

OXFORD – Oxford’s offense failed to score for the second time in as many games, and Walton pulled away with three goals in the second half.
