How It Happened

  • St. Mary's was held to just two shots and two corner kicks in 91:23 minutes of action.
  • The Seahawks' two shots came in the first half while their two corners came in the second stanza.
  • Thanks to the solid play of Larkin and the Seahawk defensive line, St. Mary's was able to keep the Profs off the scoreboard during regulation.
  • Rowan was finally able to get one past Larkin just over a minute into the first extra frame when Danni Kitzinger sent in a cross from the right side to Shannon Reardigan who all alone in the front for the finish.
