COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Lily Mynott's double-overtime game-winner pushed Franklin & Marshall's field hockey program past Ursinus, 2-1, in Centennial Conference (CC) action on Saturday.
No. 8 F&M improved to 11-1, 5-0 CC while the Bears fell to 8-4, 4-2 CC.
After a scoreless first quarter, it was Ursinus that struck first. Erin Saybolt gave the Bears a 1-0 lead with a 24th-minute score.
The score of the game remained 1-0 until the 54th minute, when Mynott tapped in her first goal of the game off of a rebounded save to tie the score at one apiece and send the game into overtime.
Despite allowing Ursinus to take four penalty corners, the Diplomats held serve in the first overtime period to send the game to double-overtime.
In the 72nd minute of play, Erin Coverdale blasted a shot at the goalkeeper from the right side, hitting off of the crossbar when Mynott poked it into the back of the cage before it could hit the ground again, ending the game, 2-1.
Christina Seery (11-1) picked up nine saves in the game behind F&M's vaunted defense.
The Diplomats return to action Wednesday night, when F&M hosts Gettysburg on Tylus Field at 7:00 p.m.
