St. Mary’s College – 11, Dickinson – 10

How It Happened

  • St. Mary’s College would start the game off strong, as Jayne Barkman drew first blood against Dickinson with a goal assisted by Kate Bartholomew just over three minutes into the game. Kelly Emge would add onto this hot start with a goal assisted by Susanna Schmidt three minutes later to put the Seahawks up by two.
  • However, Dickinson would rally back as Greta Holt scored a free position shot and Liv Yeagle would tie things back up with a goal assisted by Katherine Kerin. The Seahawks; however, wouldn’t go down that easily, as Kate Bartholomew scored a free position shot to put the Seahawks back on top with about 16 minutes left in the first half.
  • Dickinson would eventually respond via an Alex Goles free position shot, but only about 80 seconds later, the Seahawks would retake the lead again with a Lucy Gussio goal, assisted by Nancy Slaughter.
  • However, Dickinson would get hot towards the end of the first half. Chase Landis would score a free position goal with just over five minutes to go, and just 30 seconds later, Katherine Kerin would score unassisted to put Dickenson up for the first time in the game. Dickinson’s lead would increase to two before the half with a Greta Holt goal, assisted by Alex Goles, and it would stay that way when the half ended.
  • Just over two minutes into the second half, Lucy Gussio scored an unassisted goal. This would be the start of another competitive half, as Dickinson refused to give up their two-goal lead. Whenever the Seahawks scored, Dickinson would respond with a goal of their own. Dickinson managed to do this four times in the second half, with the final one being a Maddy Gesner free position shot scored with about four and a half minutes to go.
  • It took the Seahawks two and a quarter minutes to respond, but Emge would score a goal, assisted by Nancy Slaughter, to cut Dickinson’s lead to one. And, sure enough, another goal was scored 35 seconds later. …Only this time, it wasn’t Dickinson responding for the fifth time. Next, Gussio scored via a free position shot to tie the game up, and no team was able to break the tie before the regulation clock struck zero.
  • The first overtime was scoreless, but with just over four minutes to go in the second overtime, Kate Bartholomew finally broke through and scored the sudden death goal to cap off an incredible comeback victory for the Seahawks.
