The Last Meeting
March 10, 2013
The Golden Eaglesare making a habit of thrilling wins of late. Marking itsthird overtime game already through the first five games this season, MU moved to 2-1 in the extra session. First was a disappointing 8-7 double-overtime loss against No. 16/17 Johns Hopkins in the season opener down in Houston. The team grabbed its first win of the year when it took down Duquesne on the road, 8-7 (Feb. 28)and then made it two straight wins withSunday's 5-4 triumphover UC-Davis.
Emily Donovan's second goal of the game with 2:14 remaining in OT proved to be the game-winner. The Golden Eagles never trailed in the contest, but saw its 3-0 lead evaporate late in the second half when the Aggies (1-3) scored twice with less than 10 minutes left in regulation to tie the game at 4-4. MU peppered UC-Davis goalie to the tune of 18 shots on goal versus just six shots on target for the Aggies.
Taylor Smith continued you torrid pace offensively with two more goals in the win, giving her six in the last two games and a team-leading nine goals on the season. Claire Costanza added three more points to maintain her team-lead in that category, scoring the second goal of the game and assisting on both Donovan goals. Last season's team points leader nowhas at least a point in all five games this season, including four multi-point games.
