Dramatic, Late Saves Preserve One-Goal Owatonna Lacrosse Win
Owatonna's defense was strong all game against Northfield in a boys lacrosse game Thursday night. With Northfield within a goal late in the fourth quarter, junior goalie for the Huskies Korban Stricklin was called upon to make a pair of monster saves to preserve a 10-9 victory.
The Raiders had a good open look from their right wing by Isak Johnson that Korban stopped. The Raiders best chance came as Matthew Bell sprinted straight up the middle, caught a pass from behind the net and took a shot at point-blank range that Stricklin caught.
The Huskies trailed 2-1 late in the first quarter but scored four straight goals to start the second and never trailed. OHS pushed its lead out to 8-4 early in the third. The Raiders responded with four of the next five goals to make it 9-8.
Owatonna's Caleb Belting scored his third goal of the contest with 3:06 to go in the third off a feed from Zack Kirsch to lead 10-8. Spencer Klotz scored with 7:38 remaining and Northfield dominated control down the stretch, but the Huskies (2-0) held on for the 10-9 win. Stricklin had 19 saves.
