St. Michaels 1 — Crisfield 0 (OT)
CRISFIELD — The St. Michaels High field hockey team made the two-plus hour ride to Crisfield count after sophomore Tori Batley scored unassisted in overtime for the game’s only goal in a 1-0 victory.
St. Michaels fired 11 shots on the cage, but it wasn’t until Batley unloaded shot No. 12 in overtime that a ball ended up inside, as the team evened its record at 1-1.
“We were pressuring and it was getting batted around outside of the circle,” Saints head coach Missy Cannon said.” Tori got it and broke it in, took a shot and the goalie saved it. She was able to catch the rebound and get past the goalie to score.”
Sami Washburn was the winning goalie, holding strong on a series of challenges until her offense broke through.
“We had many chances to win in regular time, but just could not seem to find the back of the goal,” Cannon said. “The game was hard fought on both sides. My girls played with a lot of passion and heart, something that is hard to teach, but they have been learning. We’re so young, this was a big deal for them.”
