BRYN MAWR, Pa. – Everyone in attendance got to watch extra field hockey Wednesday afternoon as the Bryn Mawr-Immaculata game dipped into double overtime to get a winner. However, if you're a fan of the Yellow and White, it wasn't the outcome you wanted as the visiting Mighty Macs defeated the Owls 2-1 in non-league action.
On a hot and steamy Applebee Field, both Bryn Mawr and Immaculata battled back-and-forth in the opening half with the first 35-minutes ending in a 0-0 draw.
The second-half started in similar fashion to how the entire first-half was play, back-and-forth play, the visiting Mighty Macs found the back of the cage when Tiffany Lockfeld scored and a Natalie Rivera pass during a penalty corner. With the lead, Immaculata did all they could to fend-off any Bryn Mawr attack as Christine McIntyre turned away five Bryn Mawr shots in the second.
After pulling their goalie to gain an extra field player and time vanishing off the clock, it was the Owls' 11th shot of the half that tied the game. With 12 seconds remaining in regulation, junior Madison Beckmann sent a pass to the middle of the field where classmate Holly Constants stuck her stick out and redirected the ball past McIntyre. The goal, Constant's team-best sixth of the season, is also Bryn Mawr's latest goal in a game in recent history.
The second-half came to and with the game knotted at 1-1.
After a scoreless first overtime period, Immaculata's Ashley O'Donnell scored the game winner with help from Lockfeld just 1:46 into the second overtime. With the win, the Mighty Mace to 2-2 on the season while the Owls drop to 2-2 as well.
The game was evenly matched as Immaculata took 25 shots and got 11 corners. The Owls tallied 20 shots and 11 corners.
In the goal, senior Faith Westdorp posted 13 saves in 86 minutes of work.
Bryn Mawr is back to action on Saturday, Sept. 14, when the Owls travel to Goucher for a 4:00 pm contest with the Gophers.
