Oxford Tournament

Marathon 2, Greene 1 (OT)

Oxford 7, Whitesboro 1

OXFORD – Missed scored opportunities, in large part due to stellar goaltending and defense by Marathon, allowed the Olympians to stretch the finals of the Oxford Blackhawks Tournament to seven-versus-seven overtime.

In that format, Trojans coach Sue Carlin conceded it was more to the tourney champions' benefit. “They have a lot of talented kids,” Carlin said. “We had a lot of chances in their defensive end and we played extremely well. I think we frustrated them and we executed our game plan perfectly other than putting the ball in the goal.”

Marathon's Hannah Griep ended overtime play just 1:01 into the extra period putting the ball away on a fast break. The Olympians gained possession after a turnover and soon had the Trojans in a three-on-one situation. “We got caught in transition big time,” Carlin said of the final play. “A team as good as Marathon, you can't make those kinds of mistakes.”

Greene accumulated more shots and penalty corners than Marathon and led 1-0 after one half. Megan Boeltz's long hit from outside the penalty circle was deflected into the cage by Holly Davis at the 11-minute mark.

Marathon's Stephanie Fisher evened the count 7:17 into the second half.

Oxford rolled to a 7-1 victory in the consolation game – the third time this season the Blackhawks have had at least 20 shots.

Christi Baker scored twice in each half for four goals, while Tori Lints, Jessica Martin, and Vanessa Pierson had tallies.
