#19 UMass Suffers Double-Overtime Setback, 2-1
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Despite controlling play throughout much of the contest, the No. 19 UMass field hockey team dropped a double-overtime decision to American University, 2-1, on Sunday afternoon. Sophomore defender Lauren Allymohamed notched the lone UMass goal of the contest as the Minutewomen closed play at the Terrapin Invitational on the campus of the University of Maryland.
In the second overtime period, American University used a penalty corner to create the difference, with Shelly Montgomery totaling the game-winning mark in the 93rd minute. Jaclyn Anspach notched an early goal to put the Eagles ahead in the opening minutes of the game, 1-0 and the contest played scoreless until Allymohamed recorded her first collegiate tally.
In the 60th minute, Allymohamed, who led UMass with four shots on goal during the game, deflected the ball into the cage following a penalty corner attempt to even the score at 1-1. Senior midfielder Kim Young received an assist on the play, marking Young's 40th collegiate point.
Total shots on the contest favored the Minutewomen, 20-4, while UMass also led in on-target attempts, 15-3. The offensive supremacy UMass exhibited also extended to penalty corner attempts, which the Minutewomen dominated, 10-3.
Freshman goalkeeper Sam Carlino played the entirety of the contest for UMass but did not make a save during the game. American's Ashley Dalisera stopped 14 shots for the Eagles. UMass drops to 3-3 on the year while American University improves to 2-4.
The Minutewomen continue their season at Gerber Field on Friday, Sept. 14 with a 6 p.m. contest against No. 14 Northeastern (4-0).
