In a tough Divisional matchup Wednesday night, Saline battled Dexter to a 3-2 win. The Hornets scored two second half goals to secure the win. Senior captain Devin Reilly knocked in the game winner with 8 minutes left in the game on a reverse chip shot that went high over the goalkeeper.

In the first half, Reilly's sister Erin scored the first goal of the game on a one-time shot to the center of the cage after a baseline pass from Hannah Jarvie. The Dreadnaughts answered with two goals before the end of the 1st half. Junior Bridget Skelly scored the equalizing goal 11 minutes into the 2nd half with a reverse hit from the left side of the scoring circle.

Saline Goalkeeper Julia Bentley had 5 saves in the victory.

The Hornets travel to Cranbrook-Kingswood on Monday.
