Another overtime win for Purple Tornado

CONKLIN— Eventually, Norwich or Susquehanna Valley would have to find the endzone. The overtime system in Section IV demanded an outcome.

With scoring for both clubs at the absolute minimum through 48 minutes of regulation play, the Tornado were able to capitalize on their first OT possession, then held on against SV to win 6-0 on Saturday afternoon.

After not playing in an overtime session since it was introduced to Section IV play several years ago, Norwich went into extra minutes for the second straight week, and each time has come away victorious. The Tornado are 2-3 overall, but in the all-important division standings, are tied for first with a 2-0 mark. “We’ve sold to our kids to never quit,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “We’re a resilient bunch, and when push comes to shove, we’ve been able to get these victories.”
