The Redskins then put a flurry of shots on goal the rest of the way, including one off the left post, but Maddox came up with every save and finished with 10.
"[Hurricane] just got in our heads, I don't know how,'' said Jayne Lawman, who recently verbally committed to Marshall. "We had to pick it up and settle down and just work as a team. Once we got that first goal back we just got back up.''
For Hurricane coach Shelly Young, Winfield exposed some weak points. There's a good possibility that the Redskins and Generals will meet for the Mountain State Athletic Conference championship as well as in sectional play.
"It's tough to lose, but it's a good time,'' she said. "My girls are motivated to make the changes that we need to make. Just small things like winning balls in the air. This game really brought it to the forefront.
"A couple little things to tweak on defense, how our defense shifts and our defensive formations. Sometimes when you win all the time it's hard to convince teenage girls that just because we're winning doesn't mean we're doing everything right.''
Lawman said Tuesday's win over Hurricane reinforced what the Generals must do to repeat as champions.
"You can't let people get you down,'' said the junior. "Whenever you first come out, be prepared. We haven't been down like that this year. It was a good setback for us to work harder and not let that happen again.''
