Yellowjackets settle for tie vs. Seton

(Continued)

More nearly had a goal late in the half, but her shot deflected off the crossbar. It came out to Harmer on the left side, but Harmer shot high to the near post.

Seconds into the second half, Brieanna Baker sent a pass to the right side of the box to More, whose shot to the near post was saved by Walter.

The Saints then generated a couple of solid chances, with Alysin Klock taking a 15-yard shot on a semi-breakaway that Maddie Grau saved and Genna Michitti shooting over the crossbar from the right side, that coming with 22:30 to play.

Baker then had a golden chance to make it a two-goal spread, using her speed to penetrate into right side of the box. She took a low shot that seemed destined for the far post, but Walter made a diving stop with 14 minutes left.

SCC tied the score with 9:26 remaining when Michaela Farrell dribbled about 40 yards up the left-middle of the field. OHS had two defenders near Farrell, but Farrell used some nifty footwork and split the defenders before sending a low 18-yard shot to the far post that just eluded a diving Grau.

“They accidentally did a toe poke or lunged a bit and she took that and went to goal,” Vavalle said. “It was an awesome goal.”

Added Mackey: “We’ll tip our cap to her. If in a month from now she can make the same move against our defense then they’re on to something. We gave her a good chance to look good and give her credit, she finished it and did what she’s supposed to. Hopefully, going forward that’s something we can shore up.”

With three minutes left in regulation, OHS’ Kendall Gillette received a pass from More but shot just over the crossbar from 15 yards.
