Knightettes get delayed victory

FARMINGTON — Emily Mosier redirected a flip throw from Taylor Sancegraw with a brilliant header three minutes into the second half, giving Farmington a scintillating insurance goal on Wednesday.

Sancegraw later added her 37th of the season and second of the match, as the Knightettes secured a 5-1 victory to complete a suspended semifinal contest from the Pacific Tournament.

Farmington (10-5) had established a 2-0 lead on goals from Sancegraw and Mosier on April 4 before lightning and rain halted action in the 16th minute.

Much of the first-half possession was exchanged near midfield once play resumed on Wednesday, but the Knightettes managed to strike again just before the intermission.

Mosier tracked down a lengthy diagonal ball along an open right side, and escaped a defender to send a cross toward freshman Montana Krause, who calmly turned in the box and fired over a fallen keeper in the 38th minute.

Sancegraw connected with Mosier on their dazzling set play to make it 4-0, then capped the scoring with an impressive individual effort in space, dribbling past three Lady Owls before beating the keeper during the 68 minute.

Kayla Dye put Windsor (9-3-1) on the scoreboard by chipping a bouncing ball over Knightettes goalie Rebekah Sutherland.

The sophomore forward had two other chances foiled by Sutherland in the second half, including a successful sliding tackle after Dye emerged from a collision with defender Caity Friend on her feet.

Farmington senior Jessica Hicks nearly added a goal in the closing moments, but her shot slid wide among a cluster of players in the box.

Windsor failed to convert three separate corner kicks after halftime.

Starting keeper Lizzie Kahn was credited with the win after an uneventful first half for the Knightettes.
