Women's Lacrosse Comes Back But Falls in OT

Caroline Rabiecki, Gabi Toohey, Christine Hoerman and Kathrina DeMaio scored consecutive goals in the second half Monday as the Susquehanna University Women's Lacrosse team battled back from a 6-3 deficit to take a 7-6 lead but surrendered the lead late in the game and fell to Marymount University in a non-conference game in Virginia.

Susquehanna (1-3) took an early 2-0 lead as Hoerman and Toohey scored in the first 2:15 of the game. Marymount (6-1) scored three straight goals over the next 17 minutes to take a 3-2 lead but Rabiecki scored on a free-position shot with five minutes to play in the opening half to tie the score at 3-3.

Marymount scored the first three goals of the second half to surge ahead 6-3 with 23 minutes left in the second half before the River Hawks mounted their comeback.

Rabiecki scored at the 18 minute mark before Toohey and Hoerman each scored in a span of 1:38 to tie the score at 6-6.

With less than six minutes to play, DeMaio took a pass from Toohey and scored the go-ahead goal at the 5:28 mark.

A yellow card foul on goalie Libby Dex with 3:01 remaining gave Marymount an advantage and the Saints took advantage with a man-up goal with a free-position shot three seconds later to tie the game at 7-7 and force the overtime period.

Marymount won the game in the extra session with another free-position shot.

Toohey led the River Hawks with three points on two goals and an assist and Dex recorded a career-high 16 saves.

Susquehanna had its game against Roanoke scheduled for Wednesday cancelled due to impending weather and will now play its next game at home against Alvernia on March 21.
