Wagoner sweeps Hornets

(Continued)

Girls: Wagoner 3, Hilldale 1

Wagoner’s Becca Tillman was a one-person wrecking crew for the Lady Bulldogs in their win over the Lady Hornets on Friday.

Tillman, who is just getting back into playoff shape after a knee injury forced her to miss last year’s playoff run, registered her first three-goal game in Wagoner’s district opener.

“They’re a great team,” Tillman said. “It feels really great to get my first hat trick against them.”

Her first goal came at the 13:32 mark when she took a pass from Brooklyn Broad and broke free. Her shot sailed behind Hilldale’s Nicole Wright, giving Wagoner (7-3, 1-0) a 1-0 lead. The next one was four minutes later when she intercepted a pass in the middle of the penalty box and sent the shot into the left-hand corner to make the score 2-0.

“She created those three goals,” said Wagoner coach Brandon Carr. “That’s been something we’ve been looking for all season. We’re hoping that will get her back going in the right direction.”

Hilldale (3-7, 1-1) reduced the margin to 2-1 when Caitlynn Morgan headed in a corner kick from Madelin Ownby with 1:34 left in the first half. Tillman closed out the scoring at the 49:09 mark when she got around the Lady Hornets’ defense on the left-hand side and sent a shot into the short side of the net to end the scoring.

“Becca’s first year was last year and she was trying to get in the flow,” Carr said. “The girls have really taken her in and we’re hoping they rally around this.”
