On Saturday October 20th, the Millersville Lady Marauders took on the East Stroudsburg University Warriors at Biemsderfer Stadium. Both teams kept the game at 0-0 for the duration of regulation play, and both teams stayed strong during the first round of overtime. But in the second round, a lucky bounce was all it took to win the game for East Stroudsburg.
During regulation play the Warriors dominated possession of the ball, earning 20 shots on goal compared to the Marauder’s 4; but sophomore keeper Olivia Webber, No. 00, secured a career high 15 saves during the game. When regular play ended with no score posted from either team the game went into overtime.
In the first round of overtime both teams had 2 shots on goal, the play much more intense and equal than it was during regulation play. Still, neither team was able to get a goal; sending the game into a second overtime.
The Warriors were able to score in the 103 minute of play after a block by Webber went into the field and was picked up by ESU’s Kerri McClay. McClay then took a lofting shot that went just above the keepers head and into the net.
This was the 5th overtime session that the Lady Marauder’s have played in their last 11 matches; they are now 4-8-4 for the season.
Their last two games of the season will be played on home turf, Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. and Oct. 27 at 3:30 p.m.
