Arlington, Va. – First-year Emmey German (Lutherville, Md./Towson) notched her second game-winning goal of the season nearly two minutes into the first extra period, giving the St. Mary's College of Maryland women's soccer team a 2-1 Capital Athletic Conference win over Marymount (Va.) University Friday evening.
St. Mary's 2, Marymount 1 (OT)
How It Happened
- St. Mary's opened up the scoring very early in the game as first-year forward Haley Bullis (Leonardtown, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) netted her first career goal in the first minute, taking a wide open shot on the left side over Sydney Sherman.
- The Seahawks outshot Marymount, 8-2, and posted a 4-0 margin in corner kicks in the first half but could not put another one past Sherman and took a 1-0 lead into halftime.
- Despite boasting a 12-2 advantage in shots and a 3-1 edge in corners in the second half, it was not St. Mary's who scored in the final 45 minutes as Sherman came up with six stops.
- Marymount tallied the equalizer at 74:00 when Gabby Cabrales headed a corner kick from the right side over senior captain Sydney Larkin (Salisbury, Md./Parkside).
- The Seahawks' second shot of the extra frame proved to be the difference when junior defender Lauren Hall's (Perry Hall, Md./Perry Hall) initial shot off the corner kick was blocked and deflected toward the left side of the inner box where German closed in for the shot into the right side of the net for the game-winner. This was Hall's first career assist.
