FROM STAFF REPORTS
Jenna Abraham, Kelsey Carter and Lizzie Weast scored goals in an overtime shootout and goalkeeper Charlotte Owens made a critical save as the University of Mary Washington women’s soccer team defeated St. Mary’s College, 3–2, in the Capital Athletic Conference quarterfinals Saturday at the UMW Battleground Athletic Complex.
The Eagles’ success in the shootout wouldn’t have occurred, however, if Jenny Mayo didn’t send the game into overtime with a goal with 58.3 seconds left in regulation, making the score 2–2. Mayo also scored the Eagles other goal in regulation.
