Washington College 10 Haverford 9 (OT)
How It Happened
- Katherine Vincent scored her fifth goal of the game with 12:22 left in the second half on a free position score to tie the game at 8-8 as the tally capped a 6-1 run by the Shorewomen who trailed 7-2 with 20:57 remaining in the half.
- Haverford would retake the lead with 6:55 to go in regulation when Sarina Manetta scored her fourth goal of the contest with Kate Sollee tallying the assist to put the guests ahead 9-8.
- After the Fords forced a turnover with 25 seconds left, Haverford tried to run the clock out, but threw the ball away and Washington's Caitlin Donovan picked up the ball with 10 seconds left. Donovan found Madison Acra who found Docktor and Docktor's bounce shot from the right side from about eight yards out found the back of the net to level the game at 9-9 with 1.1 ticks remaining and sent the game to OT.
- Madison Schutz won the draw control to start overtime and the ball eventually got to Docktor who was fouled by a Haverford player leading to a free position shot. Docktor would bounce her shot into the upper left corner of the goal to give the Shorewomen the golden goal victory in a game that Washington never led in until the end.
