Last Time We Faced Bryn Mawr: A Spencer Plante tally just three minutes into the contest was more than enough for goalkeeper Amanda McGowan to notch her record-breaking 17th career shutout, as F&M hung on for the a 1-0 victory over Bryn Mawr on Sept. 28, 2013.

McGowan recorded five saves on the game for her fourth shutout of the season, passing Erin Roy '08 for first on F&M's all-time list.

Last Week: Nicole Rynecki tied the game at 1-1 in the 85th minute, however F&M was edged out 2-1 in 2OT by Ursinus on Saturday.

With the score knotted at 0-0 in the 83rd minute of the contest, the Bears' Danielle Beal ripped a shot that F&M goalkeeper Shannon Johnson-Finn saved, however the ball came out on the right side where Alexis Haug was there to put it in and give Ursinus a late 1-0 advantage.

Less than two minutes later, in the 85th minute, a Diplomat corner kick was deflected and Rynecki kicked it in for her first goal of the year pulling F&M into a tie at 1-1 and sending the game into overtime.

After neither team could find the back of the net in the first overtime, the match headed to a second overtime where the Bears' Katherine Bell took a shot from just inside the middle of the box in the 105th minute that snuck past Johnson-Finn to give Ursinus the 2-1 victory.
