We got off to a good start but Madrid-Waddington didnt quit. We had a few mistakes midway through the first half and late in the game but with such a large bench I need to get some those players into the game. We just didnt mark on their two goals, said P-H coach Evan Harper.
Parishville-Hopkinton came right at us. We played better as the game moved on and at the end we just ran out of time, said M-W coach Gary Tischler.
Blake Orosz scored the first Jackets (2-6-1, 2-5 NAC East) goal in the 26th minute of play from Desiree Pryce. Kaleigh Field pulled M-W to within one when she knocked the ball into the back of the net through a scramble in front of the goal that began with a well-placed corner kick from the right by Sam Dugan with 1:45 left in regulation.
