Marauders pull off monumental rally

Field Hockey

Sherburne-Earlville 4, Sauquoit Valley 3

SHERBURNE Sherburne-Earlville completed one of its best comeback victories in years rallying from a two-goal halftime deficit to defeat Sauquoit Valley Monday afternoon.

Emma Hodges scored 42 seconds into the second half to pull her club to within 3-2, and Hodges assisted Megan Rodman two minutes later for the tying goal.

The winning tally came with 11 1/2 minutes left when Alexa Bates scored after a crossing pass from Hodges.

"We just made great, composed plays in the circle," said S-E coach Sheila Cooman of the second-half goals. "It's hard to come back from that many down, but (the girls) really gutted it out."

Despite S-E's dominance in the second half, Sauquoit Valley made one final offensive push, and had a penalty corner with no time left on the clock. "Again, the defense was really composed (at the end), and played really, really well the entire second half," Cooman said.
