SHERBURNE-EARLVILLE – From Friday, Sept. 2, until the championship game on the following day, on Saturday, Sept. 3, the Marauder's of S-E would host their annual kicked-off tournament on their home fields.
The weekend of games for the four team tournament was broken into qualifying rounds on the first day, followed by a consolation game and championship the following day.
• Right out of the gates on Friday, it was Frankfort-Schuyler facing off against Morrisville Eaton/Hamilton, a game that would be won by a mere one point in the second half. It was all ME/Hamilton in the first half of the contest as they would score the lone goal in that time frame. However, a rejuvenated Frankfurt-Schuyler would rally for a three score second half – in comparison to the one goal scored in the second for ME/Hamilton – lifting Frankfort-Schuyler to the championship game the following day.
Rose Simmons, Hanna Linscott and Hailey Traut would each score a goal for F-S, while Emily McCann and Mackensie Sternburg would each score one a piece in the losing effort.
• The Lady Marauder's would suffer a surprising loss to visiting Unatego in the second qualifying game of the evening.
S-E would move into the second half with a 1-1 tie against Unatego, something that wouldn’t last long once the teams took the field following the break.
