FROM STAFF REPORTS
Sophomore forward Erin Reynolds scored the game-winning goal in overtime yesterday to lead the University of Mary Washington women’s soccer team to a
2–1 victory at York College in the first round of the Capital Athletic Conference tournament.
The Eagles (9–6–2) advanced to the CAC semifinals on Wednesday at Salisbury University.
York took a 1–0 lead on Jena Armister’s goal at 56:39. The Eagles responded at 73:32, as junior Excy Herrera Edison found sophomore Kelsey Carter for a header score that knotted the game at 1–1. Neither team scored in the remaining regulation time.
From that point, the Eagles turned up the effort with several quality chances, but couldn’t find a winning score by the close of regulation.
That changed when In overtime, Reynolds drilled a shot at York goalkeeper Sarah Spanarkel at 97:29, collected the rebound and found the goal with her eighth score of the season, giving UMW the victory that avenged a 2–1 regular-season overtime loss at York.
