Shenandoah Upsets W&L Women's Soccer, 3-2, in Overtime
LEXINGTON, Va. – Shenandoah first-year midfielder Harmon Hall (Salem, Va./Salem) netted the game-winning goal 2:28 into the second overtime to push the seventh-seeded Hornets past the second-seeded Washington and Lee women's soccer team, 3-2, on Saturday afternoon in the ODAC Tournament quarterfinals at Watt Field.
Harmon sent a high long-range shot that soared over first-year goalkeeper Addie Healy's (Waterford, Va./Woodgrove) head and into the back of the net at the 102:30 mark to give SU the victory.
The Hornets (9-10-1) opened the scoring after first-year defender Kari Delamarre-Brand (Shirley, N.Y./Longwood) scored off a corner kick by Hall in the 28th minute.
At 37:26, the Generals (14-3-1) evened the score, 1-1, when first-year midfielder Becca Dunn (Houston, Texas/Memorial) notched an unassisted tally into the far-left corner of the goal from 11-yards out.
Sophomore forward Katherine Rush (Cornelius, N.C./Providence Day School) gave W&L a 2-1 lead with just 3:08 left in the first half on her 14th goal of the season.
The Generals retained the 2-1 advantage until junior midfielder Hannah Oakes (Front Royal, Va./Warren County) found the back of the net off a shot from the right side of the box for the Hornets' tying goal.
W&L held an advantage in both shots, 18-10, and corner kicks, 14-4.
In net for the Blue and White was Healy, who registered four saves and three goals-against in 102:28.
First-year Nicole Pratt (Chesapeake, Va./Atlantic Shores) spent the entire game in goal for SU, collecting six saves and two goals-against.
The Generals have now completed the 2012-13 campaign. Shenandoah moves on to Wednesday's ODAC semifinals, where it faces third-seeded Lynchburg for a chance to advance to the tournament's championship game.
