OHS soccer team battles Winnebago to 1-1 tie

Oregon's Juan Ocampo received a pass in the center of the field from Adam Weller with about 5 minutes left to play against Winnebago Monday night.

The senior looked to the right, moved to the left, and stretched out to put the ball past the goalie to tie the game at 1-1.

The score remained tied at 1-1 after the first 5-minute overtime. In the second OT, Oregon had three chances to win the game but both fell just short.

With 2:14 to play, Ian Starkey took a shot from center goal only to see the ball hit the top crossbar and bounce out of bounds.

Then with 1:10 left in the period, Ryan Bennett broke loose and tried to angle one past the goalie only to see it be deflected past a rushing Hawk.

And with about 15 seconds left, Starkey raced down the field and found Jerome Baldwin open whose shot went just wide of the goal ending the game in a 1-1 tie.

Jordan Gilmour made 10 saves for Oregon (3-6-2 and 1-1-1 Big Northern West).
