Overtime has been no stranger to the Gilroy High field hockey team this season.
It's sometimes not about how a team starts, but it's how it finishes.
Two undefeated teams, a combined 19 penalties, three failed 2-point conversion tries, more than 700 yards of offense and a four-minute, 21-second, 61-yard game-winning drive, all jumbled together to produce the two most important figures in a gritty, physical, hard-nosed contest that was destined to go down to the wire.
The Christopher High girls field hockey team had players hovering around the cage all afternoon and managed to sling four goals in a 4-0 victory over York in a Mission Trail Athletic League encounter Wednesday in Gilroy.
The Christopher High girls varsity tennis team was without its top-two singles players as it took on Pajaro Valley on Tuesday in Watsonville. No problem.
