In a crazy, back-and-forth game the Haverford College women’s lacrosse team pulled out a 10-9 overtime victory over host Washington College Wednesday evening in Centennial Conference play. Alex Pesce fed Jen Schmidt for the game-winner 2:14 into overtime.

After surrendering an early lead the Fords scored three unanswered goals in just over a two-minute span late in regulation to take the lead, 9-8, before Washington (5-4, 1-3 CC) scored with 21 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime.

Haverford (10-1, 3-1 CC) was whistled for 25 fouls and penalized with five yellow cards compared to just 11 fouls and no cards for the Shorewomen. Despite the difference, the Fords did not surrender a man-down goal all game.

Josie Ferri (Pennsbury), Kayleigh Herrick-Reynolds, Perrin Downing and Schmidt all scored two goals for the Fords. Pesce and Nora Proops scored one goal apiece and Pesce added a pair of assists.
