Mount Women's Soccer Clipped by Bryant, 1-0, in Overtime

Emmitsburg, Md. (October 26, 2012)--The Mount St. Mary's women's soccer team was clipped by Bryant, 1-0, in overtime on Friday afternoon at Waldron Family Stadium on campus.

The Bulldogs (11-8-0, 6-4-0 NEC) kept their playoff hopes alive when Shana Follette took a cross from Rachael Ivanicki in the 97th minute and beat Mount goalkeeper Rachel Bourne for the winning goal.

Just minutes before, the Mount had a great scoring chance in the overtime period when Jackie Corley had a shot from 18 yards out denied by Bryant keeper Kelsi Jacobs.

The Mount (7-10-1, 2-6-1 NEC) had a chance to win at the end of regulation when Alicia Mirando broke in on goal, but had her header stopped by Jacobs with 1:13 left.  Mirando was able to collect the rebound, but could not get a shot off.

The Bulldogs had several good scoring opportunities in the first half, including a pair of shots that hit the post.

Bryant held a 20-to-8 advantage in shots in the game and a 6-to-2 edge in corner kicks.  Bourne made a pair of saves for the Mount in 51:50 of action while Vicky Cocozza made three saves in the first half.  Jacobs had four saves for Bryant.

The all-time series between the two teams is now tied a 2-2 with three of the four games going to overtime.

The Mount closes out the 2012 season by hosting Monmouth on Sunday at 12:00 p.m. at Waldron Family Stadium.
