ARLINGTON, Va. – A second-half equalizer by sophomore Gabby Cabrales was not enough for the Marymount women's soccer to earn its second-straight Capital Athletic Conference victory on Friday night, as St. Mary's College of Maryland found the back of the net in overtime to take the 2-1 decision at Long Bridge Park.
The Saints had to battle back all match, falling behind in the opening minute of the match to the Seahawks, 1-0, after a shot was put up over the hands of MU junior goalkeeper Sydney Sherman.
The score held at that for the next 73 minutes, until late in the second half when Marymount put away the equalizer off a set piece. Earning a corner kick, the first of the night, sophomore Makayla Dulac sent in a high ball into the middle of the box where there was a mix of players from both teams. Leaping up, the ball struck the head of Cabrales first with the redirection going over the outstretched arms of league-leading goals-against average keeper Sydney Larkin.
With the knotted score, the game was sent to extra time where less than two minutes in, the Seahawks earned the game winner. A shot deflected off a Saint defender and rolled toward the backside of the net where it was struck again by St. Mary's Emmey German for the finish at 2-1 victory.
Sherman tended the net for the full match, making seven saves in the effort.
The Saints will look to rally back on Wednesday, October 11, as they head to the Eastern Shore of Maryland for another CAC tilt against Salisbury University. First touch is slated for 4 p.m.
