FREDERICK, Md.- The Hood College women's soccer team battled the Catholic Cardinals to a 1-1 wash after double overtime.

Inside the Box Score

How it Happened

  • Hood struck first in the 13th minute. Merritt struck one into the bottom left corner after Scarborough played a long ball over the defense. 
  • The Cardinals had several chances to tie the game. Just a minute after Hood scored, Catholic's Elizabeth Johnson almost equalized but Colby Painter blocked the effort on the goal line. In the 35th minute, another opportunity came for the Cardinals when a Sarah Brush free kick struck the woodwork.
  • Shortly after, a ball played in by Grace Boras found Maggie Moorcones who beat the keeper tying the game 1-1 in the 36th.
  • A corner in the 62nd minute lad to a Sarah Brush header that struck the crossbar. 
  • In the first overtime, both teams had chances. Johnson found her way into the box but a last-ditch slide tackle from Ashley Wiedemann kept the score level. In the 95th minute, Scarborough nearly ran down a long pass but Cardinal keeper Nina Fernandez barely let the senior get a shot off near the top of the box. 
  • The Cardinals had the two best chances of the second overtime but the Hood defense did not break. Erickson made a point-blank save in the 109th minute. The final seconds of the game saw a Brush free kick that was just wide of the frame.
