New Oxford's Braxtin Reddinger scored 10 goals against South Western Tuesday night.
Braxtin Reddinger doesn't usually get nervous before games, but Tuesday night was an exception.
Not only was the New Oxford senior playing against her former school, South Western, she entered the game needing just two goals to reach 200 for her career.
"Before the game I was like, 'I can't get two goals, I just can't do it,'" Reddinger said.
It took less than seven minutes for Reddinger to prove herself wrong. She scored her second goal of the game at the 18:30 mark of the first half to reach the milestone.
The University of Maryland-Baltimore County commit finished with 10 goals in a 18-8 New Oxford win. It was the first time the Colonials had beaten the Mustangs in program history.
Having spent her first two years of high school playing for the Mustangs, Reddinger was understandably emotional afterward.
"I grew up with South Western and I know all the girls," she said. "We've been working for this so hard."
