Red Devils Best Owls in Shootout

Red Devils Best Owls in Shootout

BRYN MAWR, Pa. - 60-minutes, 70-minutes, and even 80-minutes were not enough to settle things on Saturday between Dickinson and Bryn Mawr, as the Red Devils got goals from Hailey Womer and Sierra Bobb in the shootout to topple the Owls 2-1 on Saturday afternoon in Centennial Conference play.  

Dickinson got the scoring started at the 6:14 mark when Bobb found Morgan Yandow-Harding in the circle where she fired a shot past Maggie Titus for the 1-0 lead. Two minutes later Saige Stevens was up to the task in the cage as she denied Eva Yacura. Hannah Spiri and Tara Hausker had chances late in the quarter, but both missed wide. 

The Owls took advantage of a penalty corner five minutes into the second quarter as the ball came to Yacura for a shot that slipped by Stevens to knot the score at 1-1. The defense for both sides would be strong the rest of the period as there would not be another shot. 

The visitors came out of the break fired up as Abby Marthins forced a save out of Titus, before Ellie Werner had her attempt swept off the line by Courtney Cutone to keep the score tied after three.

In the final quarter of regulation, there would be just one shot that came off the stick of the Owls Hazel Miller that sailed high of the mark sending the contest to overtime. 

The first overtime started off with each team recording a shot as Spiri missed wide, while Kate Ervin was shutdown by Stevens. Five minutes into the period the Red Devils had a great chance to win when Philine Smits found herself in front of the cage, but Titus was able to make the initial save followed by the rebound. That led to Miller breaking through the defense at the other end where Stevens said no.

Stevens was busy in the second period of OT stopping Sarah Chapman, Cutone, and Ervin. BMC had a great chance to end the game with 1:51 to play as they were awarded a penalty stroke. Fortunately, for the Devils Novy Goetgeluk pushed her shot wide left. 

The shootout began with Womer running down the right side and sliding a shot by Titus. After Miller beat Stevens to draw even, Bobb ran in with speed and stepped around the keeper for the finish. The rest of the shooters were unable to solve the keepers resulting in the 2-1 win for DC.
