SALEM, VA —
Roanoke freshman Steph Calabrese scored the deciding goal with 4:42 remaining, and fellow rookie Koehl Robinson stopped a Bobcat free position shot with 58 seconds to play as the host Maroons held off Frostburg State, 14-13, Tuesday afternoon.
Roanoke (6-2) took a 13-9 lead with 20:10 remaining on sophomore Sarah Cook's second goal of the contest, before the Bobcats made a late charge, scoring three times to cut their deficit to a single goal with 6:01 left.
FSU junior Andrea Duffy (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) found the net for the third time at the 17:29 mark, and freshman Caitlin Howley (Damascus, Md./Damascus) followed with a goal with 14:38 remaining.
Freshman Page Macey (Linthicum, Md./North County) then pulled the Bobcats to within one, 13-12, when she notched her game-high fourth goal with 6:01 to play.
Calabrese, who also added four assists, gave the Maroons a crucial 14-12 edge with a free position tally with just under five minutes left, but FSU freshman Melissa Tomko (Laurel, Md./Pallotti) answered with 1:13 on the clock.
The Bobcats won the ensuing draw and took the ball to their offensive end where they were awarded a free position with just 58 seconds left.
Sophomore Courtney Bayless (Baltimore, Md./Mercy) took the shot on goal, but she was denied by Robinson and the Maroons were then able to run out the clock.
FSU opened the scoring when Duffy found the net with an assist from Macey just 3:11 in, but Roanoke scored three straight to take a 3-1 advantage.
Macey notched an unassisted tally at 14:06 to pull the Bobcats to within 3-2, but the Maroons outscored FSU, 8-5, the rest of the half and took an 11-7 lead at the break.
Roanoke sandwiched goals around two consecutive Bobcat tallies for a 13-9 advantage before surviving FSU's comeback bid.
Macey added an assist to go along with her four-goal effort, while Duffy had three goals and two assists. Tomko finished with a pair of goals.
Bobcat sophomore Sarah Shockley (Fallston, Md./Fallston) made 14 saves, while Robinson had six stops for Roanoke.
