Connecticut College 2, UMass-Dartmouth 1 OT
Driscoll-Katz Connect on Game-Winner for Camels
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Chelsea Johnson (Portland, Maine) scored the equalizing goal with a penalty kick in the 83rd minute of play and Katelyn Driscoll (Peabody, Mass.) tallied the game-winner 3:15 into the extra session to lead the Connecticut College women´s soccer team (3-2) past UMass-Dartmouth (4-4) in a 2-1 nail-biting victory on Tempel Green Tuesday.
Senior net-minder Bailey Andrews (Pembroke, Mass.) made seven saves in relief of Amy Lowitt (Baltimore, Md.) to secure the victory for the hosts. Lowitt contributed two saves in a perfect first half of shutout goalkeeping.
Sharon Katz (Barrington, R.I.) set up the game-winning goal with the sixth assist and 34th point of her career. Katz was able to lead Driscoll in on a breakaway, creating a one-on-one situation vs. UMass Dartmouth goalie Tanya Braga (Hudson, Mass.). Braga did all she could to deliver a victory for the visitors, recording 16 saves in the contest. But Driscoll was able to make good on the final shot of the contest, tucking one inside the right post to secure the Camel victory.
Kelsy Boothby (Holbrook, Mass.) buried a header on a crossing pass from Nichole Hoffman (Stoughton, Mass.) in the 50th minute of action to put the Corsairs on top 1-0. Boothby leads the UMass Dartmouth offense with five goals and 12 points this fall.
Connecticut College will host Amherst College this Saturday afternoon for a noon-time NESCAC match-up on Tempel Green.
The Corsairs will visit UMass Boston Saturday for a 1:00 p.m. game in Dorchester, Mass.
