Field Hockey vs. McDaniel

Senior midfielder Kendall Korte (Virginia Beach, Va./Cox) tallied the game-winning goal off an assist by junior forward Christina Merchant (Midlothian, Va./Collegiate) to lead the Washington and Lee field hockey team to a 3-2 overtime victory against McDaniel on Saturday afternoon.

The Generals (2-1) opened the scoring when sophomore forward Sallie Armstrong (Houston, Texas./St. Johns) found the back of the cage with 4:24 remaining in the first half. The Generals carried a 1-0 lead into the half and Korte scored the first of two goals on a penalty stroke at the 52:46 mark for a 2-0 advantage.

Shortly after Korte's stroke, McDaniel (2-2) made its way onto the scoreboard as junior forward Jamie Smith (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) put a shot past W&L sophomore goalkeeper Caroline Habliston (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) at 54:13. Sophomore midfielder Amanda Pickard (Hampstead, Md./North Carroll) then tied the game at 2-2 with a goal at the 61:25 mark, setting up Korte's game winner, which came shortly after a penalty corner just 6:08 into the overtime session.

Senior goalkeeper Tara Rubenstein (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr) played the first half and overtime for Washington and Lee and recorded no saves. Habliston played the second half, making one save. McDaniel junior goalkeeper Erika Wawzyanick (Wantage, N.J./High Point Regional) stopped four shots.
