Carlisle, Pa. ...
Sophomore Angie Weaver (Alburtis, Pa./Brandywine Heights) scored her second goal of the game 3:36 into the second overtime as Frostburg State rallied from a 4-0 first-half deficit to defeat Dickinson College, 5-4, in the Bobcats' regular-season finale.
Weaver took a service from senior Brooke Middleton (Waldorf, Md./Thomas Stone), beat a defender one-on-one and slid the ball past Red Devil goalie Susan Palmer into the left corner.
It was Frostburg State's first overtime win this season after dropping three extra-session contests.
Trailing 4-0 in the closing seconds of the first half, sophomore Andrea Duffy (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) got the Bobcats on the board just eight seconds before halftime on an assist from Weaver.
Weaver cut the FSU deficit in half just over five minutes into the second half, and senior Laura Basil (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) notched her first goal of the game just 1:34 later to bring the Bobcats to within 4-3.
Basil then took a pass from freshman Lindsay Grant (Stevensville, Md./Queen Annes) and found the back of the net with 28:51 left in regulation to send the teams into overtime.
Freshman Stephanie Zych (Slingerlands, N.Y./Guilderland) made five first-half saves before giving way to senior Jessica Richardson (Waldorf, Md./Thomas Stone), who stopped five shots to pick up the win and improve to 6-3 on the season.
"I am extremely proud of how we came back from a 4-0 deficit," said head coach Carrie Lysik. "We came together in the second half, and every single player contributed tonight. Our next goal is to come home with the AMCC championship."
The Bobcats, who snapped a season-high three-game losing streak, improved to 10-6 on the season. They return to action on Friday in the AMCC Championships at Penn State Behrend.
Frostburg State is seeded second with a 3-2 league record and will face third-seeded La Roche at 3:00 p.m. in the semifinals. The Bobcats defeated the Red Hawks, 4-2, at home earlier this season.
Top seed Penn State Behrend will meet No. 4 Pitt-Bradford in the other semifinal, with the title game set for Saturday at 2:00 p.m.
