The Mustangs earned 16 short-corner opportunities, head coach
Adam Gemar said, converting one of those chances seven minutes into
the second half.
The Gilroy High field hockey team played to a 1-1 tie with Saint Francis in Mount Hamilton Division play on Thursday night in Mountain View.
“It was a super-fast game and a super-fun one,” head coach Adam Gemar said.
The Mustangs earned 16 short-corner opportunities, Gemar said, converting one of those chances seven minutes into the second half. Monica Marrazzo pushed the ball far post for a GHS 1-0 lead. Dani Hemeon was credited with the assist.
“We had more opportunities than them,” Gemar said. “They attacked us pretty well and were fast on defense.”
The Lancers countered toward the end of regulation, forcing sudden death overtime, which is played seven versus seven for seven minutes.
Neither team was able to break the deadlock.
“Our girls felt like they lost,” Gemar said. “Saint Francis felt like they wont a world championship or something because we are the only undefeated team in the league.”
The Mustangs (13-0-1 overall, 9-0-1 in league) travel to San Jose to take on Leigh today at 3:30 p.m.
