“We knew it was going to be a tough game, a close game, and maybe we should have been up by more after the first half,” said Trojans coach Joe Champion. “We want to score more goals when we are dominating play.”
It didn’t take long for the Trojans to grab the 1-0 lead, as a score in the first 10 minutes from Marissa Ribeiro accomplished that.
In the second half, Franklin pulled even when a loose ball, open net and ricochet off a Trojan combined on one sequence to knot the game.
Quality shot attempts for both sides increased in the game’s waning stages, but neither broke the tie.
Oak Ridge will begin Delta River League play on March 25.
