Red Devils Rally for School Record Ninth Straight Win
(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson College women's soccer team rallied past visiting Haverford, 2-1, in overtime on Saturday afternoon. The Red Devils set a school record, winning their ninth consecutive game of the season as they improve to 12-2-1 overall and 7-1 to remain in first place in the Centennial Conference.
Following a scoreless first half, the 'Fords snapped the Devils' seven game shutout streak as Meg Boyer won a footrace and placed a shot in the back of the net for a 1-0 advantage.
The Red Devils answered on a corner kick in the 63rd minute. Sophomore Heather Jaran (Budd Lake, N.J./Mt. Olive) served a beautiful corner to the far post that was taken into the goal by first-year Samantha Friday (Southborough, Mass./Algonquin Regional).
The teams battle scoreless throughout the final 27 minutes, sending the game into overtime. Junior Genevieve Olson (Quincy, Mass./Thayer Academy) wasted little time, scoring the game-winner just 1:29 into the extra period.
Junior Brena McKelvey (East Islip, N.Y./East Islip) and Ashley Fields (Far Hills, N.J./Ridge) anchored a solid defensive effort in front of goalkeeper Annie Weichert (Chatham, N.J./Chatham), who made one save in the win.
Senior Ashley Kunkle (Perkasie, Pa./Pennridge) turned in a strong performance in the midfield and Amanda DiGiammarino (Great Falls, Va./Langley) came off the bench and provided some quality minutes as well.
The Red Devils are home again on Tuesday, hosting Gettysburg College at 4:30 pm.
