UMW Women's Soccer Falls at York in OT, 2-1

The University of Mary Washington women's soccer team took a 1-0 lead into the final minutes of regulation at York College in Capital Athletic Conference action on Saturday, but the Eagles fell, 2-1, in overtime to the Spartans. UMW falls to 7-4-2 overall and 2-3-1 in CAC play.

After a scoreless first half, the Eagles found the nets first on a goal by sophomore Kelsey Carter at 54:22 on an assist from junior Excy Herrera. UMW carried the lead until 1:04 remaining, when York's Jordan Snook tied the score unassisted. Once into overtime the Spartans scored the game winner at 95:52 as Jena Arnister netted the decisive score.

The Spartans led in shots, 18-15, and had four corner kicks to UMW's three. Each team had nine fouls, and UMW goalkeeper Tina Brehm had six saves in defeat.
