3/3/18: GREAT OAK 8-7 LOSS: In the home opener, the Sailors came out swinging, but the visiting Wolfpack still managed to post a 4-2 lead at halftime. Newport came charging back with goals by Lily Anderson and Kirsten Odum, which knotted up the score at 4 a piece about halfway through the 2nd half. Great Oak managed to forge back ahead with a streak of 3 goals in a row, before the Sailors ended that run with back to back goals of their own, as Megan Baldwin connected with a laser shot past the Great Oak Goalie to make it a one goal game again at 7-6. Another Wolfpack tally with about 5 minutes left made it 8-6, but Newport answered with an immediate response as Kirsten Odum put in her third of the game, and it was again a one goal game with less then 2 minutes remaining. Great Oak managed to win the draw and ran the clock out for a very narrow escape.
