No. 6 Seed Loyola Defeats Penn, 10-9

BALTIMORE (AP) — Hannah Schmitt scored with 3.8 seconds left in overtime to give No. 6 seed Loyola a 10-9 victory over Penn in the opening round of the NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament on Sunday.

Schmitt took a pass from Sydney Thomas on a fast break and scored the game-winning goal at the end of the second three-minute overtime period – it was not sudden-death.

Marlee Paton led Loyola with four goals and one assist, and the Greyhounds will go to No. 3 seed Maryland next Saturday at noon in the quarterfinals.

Sunday’s game featured nine ties, and neither Loyola (14-5) nor Penn (9-8) led by more than one goal. Penn was ahead for most of  the second half until Sydney Thomas scored late for Loyola to tie the game at 8 and force overtime.

Meredith Cain scored with 21.6 seconds left in the first extra period to give Penn a 9-8 lead. But Loyola tied it on Kara Burke’s goal with three-tenths of a second left in the period.

Loyola goalie Kerry Stoothoff started the winning play with her save of a Cain shot with about 20 seconds left in the second extra period. After a foul, the Greyhounds started a fast break that ended with Thomas feeding Schmitt for the winning goal.
