LAKE ORION – The host Lake Orion Dragons held senior night Monday night and played to a 1-1 draw against their rivals, the Oxford Wildcats.

The game was physical from start to finish, but the offenses didn’t really get going until the second half, when the game opened up for the both teams. After a first half that saw the teams combine for three shots on goal, the Wildcats and Dragons raced up and down the field for much of the second half, generating nearly 20 combined shots – including 13 shots on goal – after half time. Both Lake Orion goalkeeper Taryn Redd and Oxford keeper Megan Armbruster had to come up with a handful of tough saves to keep the game scoreless until the final minutes when all of that offense finally paid dividends for both teams.

Lake Orion struck first off of a corner kick. Alexandria Tefend fire a corner kick from the left of goal into the penalty area, and Megan Danielson out leaped everyone, powering a header into the top of the net with 2:55 to play.

But the Wildcats were resilient.

Oxford’s Jade Schramm weaved through three defenders down the right side then blasted a shot into the far corner from 30 yards out, tying the score with just 23.7 seconds to play.

“We started the game with high intensity, a high level of play, and it was two good teams going at it,” Oxford head coach Phil Kimmel said. “I think there was stretches when they took it to us and stretches where we got in behind them. So I’d say it was probably a fair result as a 1-1 tie.”

Both teams now close out their respective division schedules.

Lake Orion (7-4-2) heads to Ferndale on Tuesday. The Dragons can clinch second place in the OAA Blue with a win or a draw.

Oxford (6-2-5) hosts Farmington on Thursday. The Wildcats are tied for second and still have an outside chance to win the OAA White.

“We’re still in the mix. We need some help, but we’re right there, and that’s where we want to be. I’d love to have it be in our hands and we’re in control of our own destiny but sometimes you’re not,” Kimmel said. “We’re stepping into form at the right time of the year. I think that’s the big thing.”
