W&L Field Hockey Falls in Overtime, 2-1, at St. Mary's (Md.)

ST. MARY'S CITY, Md. — St. Mary's (Md.) junior forward Brady Wolf scored with 6:09 left in overtime to push the Seahawks past the Washington and Lee field hockey team, 2-1, on Sunday.

The Generals (3-5) were trailing 1-0 late in the second half, but tied the score with 9:17 on the clock. Coming off a penalty corner, senior forward Charlotte MacDonald (Bluemont, Va./Foxcroft) fired a shot that was stopped by sophomore goalkeeper Alyssa Thompson. Junior defender Noelani Schulmeyer (Glen Arm, Md./St. Paul's School) gathered the rebound, and pushed the ball into the back of the cage for her second goal of the season.

The teams headed to the extra period tied at one, but Wolf gave St. Mary's the victory when she dribbled the ball past first-year goalkeeper Ariyel Yavalar (Baltimore, Md./Garrison Forest School) before knocking it into the goal.

Yavalar played the full 78:51 for the Generals, and stopped a career-high 13 shots. Thompson earned the victory for the Seahawks, while making four saves.

St. Mary's scored its first goal of the game 8:17 into the second half. Wolf passed the ball to the far post, and senior forward Nina Collins deflected it into the cage for the score.

The Seahawks led in shots, 30-14, and had a 15-11 advantage in penalty corners.

The Generals return to action on Thursday, when they travel to Ferrum for a 6:00 pm contest.
