OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Senior captain Celina Kaufman (Queenstown, Md./Kent Island) propels the St. Mary’s College of Maryland field hockey team (1-1) to their first win of the season as Kaufman scored the game-winning goal 13 seconds into the second extra period for a 3-2 double-overtime victory over Stevenson University (1-1) on Saturday afternoon (Sept. 3).

How It Happened

  • Thirteen seconds into the second overtime frame, St. Mary’s College earned a penalty stroke. Kaufman stepped up to the spot and flicked the ball into the left side of the goal for the Seahawks’ first win of 2022.
  • Stevenson started the scoring early as Rylee Leakway gave the Mustangs a 1-0 lead at 4:39 off a pass from Emma Gladstein.
  • The Seahawks responded less than three minutes later as senior defender Angelina Arter (Delmar, Md./Delmar) found the back of the goal for her second career goal, sending the two sides into the second quarter knotted at 1-1.
  • No scoring took place in the second frame. Stevenson edged the visitors, 3-2, in shots but sophomore goalie Kaley Christman (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) denied all three to keep the game tied at halftime.
  • The Mustangs went up 2-1 in the third period as Gladstein scored one of her own on Stevenson’s only shot of the quarter.
  • First-year forward Brenna Ziegler (Newark, Del./Newark Charter) notched her first collegiate goal in the 44th minute and the game headed into the fourth period at 2-all.
  • In the fourth quarter, each team fired off one shot but neither opportunity amounted to a goal and the game went into overtime.
  • Each side had one shot in the first overtime frame with Christman turning away Stevenson’s attempt.
