Women's Soccer Moves Into First in HCAC with Dramatic OT Win


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior Maggie Sheerin scored a deflected second overtime goal as the Fightin' Engineers capped an improbable comeback with a 3-2 win over Hanover College on Wednesday night.

Sarah Shoemaker started the play with a juke move and crossing pass into the box.  Sheerin moved into position and deflected the pass into the goal, as Rose-Hulman turned a 2-0 first half deficit into a 3-2 sudden death victory.

With the win, Rose-Hulman moves into a tie for first place in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference standings at 3-0-1 in league play.  The Fightin' Engineers also improved to 8-4-1 overall with the victory.

Hanover took a 2-0 lead in the first half on scores by Autumn Boothby and Maggie Day.  The Fightin' Engineers closed within 2-1 at halftime on a goal by Sheerin, off a pass from Jessica Wells.

In the second half, Elle Ogden tied the score at 2-2 with a goal from outside the box in the 68th minute.  The shots were relatively even through regulation with Hanover holding a narrow 11-8 edge.

In the two overtime periods, Rose-Hulman outshot the Panthers 6-0 to gain a 14-11 edge for the game.  After 10 scoreless minutes, Sheerin scored her second goal of the night to give the Engineers the win.

Katie Demert picked up the win in goal with seven saves.  Lane Lawrence had a team-high four shots.  Sheerin and Wells added three shots each.

Rsoe-Hulman returns to action on Saturday afternoon at Earlham College.
