Booters tie with Harrison

September 19, 2012

Oxford’s Travis Simat leaps over a goalie.
Oxford's soccer-playing Wildcats are proving to be one of the best teams in the OAA Blue division this season.

The team is 3-1-1 in league play following a 2-2 tie last week with Farmington Hills Harrison.

In the Harrison match, Oxford got a quick start less than 10 minutes into the match when senior Jake Wysocki took a quick re-start on a corner kick to nearby Travis Simat, who dribbled to the near post and put a shot over the Hawk's keeper.

Harrison tied the game before halftime.

In the second half, Oxford again struck quickly when Simat ripped a low cross pass into the box that Wysocki poked past the goalkeeper for a 2-1 lead.

With only six minutes remaining in the game, Harrison got a quick break and beat the Wildcat's backline for a score.

Oxford's freshman goalkeeper Connor Bandel made several big saves to keep the Cats in the match.

Oxford's overall record is 4-4-1.
