CLINTON, Tenn. | Claire Burress scored twice, but Anderson County broke things late to take a 3-2 win over Oneida in a non-district match here Tuesday (Aug. 23).
The Mavericks needed less than a minute to find the back of the net, going up 1-0 just 58 seconds into the match.
That’s the way the score stood for the longest time, before Burress scored off a rebound of a shot attempt by Aliyah Douglas with just under 15 minutes remaining in the first half. The two teams went to the intermission locked in a 1-1 tie.
The second half saw Anderson County score just over four minutes in to take a 2-1 lead. But again Burress answered. This time it was on a penalty kick with 33:40 remaining to tie the game.
Again, that’s how things stood for quite some time, before Anderson County scored with 12:07 left to take the lead for good.
