With just under eight minutes left in regulation Terrier sophomore Brit Moyna, who had been working hard the entire match, found herself right in front of the goal with a loose ball and tapped it past Lady Jacket keeper Erin Rice to tie the match and force over time.
The Yellow Jackets one good opportunity in overtime to seal the win with a nice give-and-go, but the shot lofted just over the crossbar. It would be the last chance they got, as B.F. finally took advantage.
Just three minutes into the extra session, Lady Terrier captain Kammie Crawford found herself in a crowd right in front of the Windsor goal. "The goalie fumbled the ball a bit in the crowd," Crawford said after the game. "It bounced off someone right in front and I just kicked it in." While the Terrier bench emptied onto the field to celebrate their first win of the season, it was a tough one for Windsor to swallow, as their record (at press time) fell to 2-7.
However, to the Lady Yellow Jackets credit, they really did control most of the match despite all their injury and roster issues. They did a good job in controlling the midfield and put together plenty of good scoring opportunities, but coach Bruce MacKay's team just couldn't finish off the opportunities. One wonders what this team could be capable of without all the injuries.
The Windsor High School field hockey team recently traveled to Springfield to take on the Lady Cosmos, scoring the lone goal early, then hanging on for a 1-0 win in Marble Valley League action.
Coming into the game at 5-2-1 on the season, the Lady Yellow Jackets were aggressive from the outset and carried the early play, forcing Springfield goalie Brittany Grant-Paul to make a couple early saves before Windsor's Amanda Ashline scored the only goal of the game at 27:18. Ashline took a nice through-pass from Aleigha Sykes and slammed a low shot from 10 feet out to give her team the lead.
