"This was a good game played by both teams," Spartan coach Toby McGarvey said. "We were disappointed to lose it right at the beginning of overtime there. I thought we had the momentum most of the second half."
Rockwood scored all three of its goals in a span of less than 10 minutes in the first half, but the Spartans (5-7) tied it up midway through the second half on an Alexis Mellott goal.
"We came out strong and had a lot of opportunities early on," McGarvey said. "We gotta do a better job of finishing in front of the net. Had we put the ball in the back of the net early, we would've been in a better position."
Mellott finished with a pair of goals, and Morgan Kendall had her first tally of the season. Kellyn Perry recorded 13 saves.
