HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., April 12, 2013 -- Junior Amy Roguski (Sykesville, Md./Liberty) scored in the third overtime to lift James Madison to a 9-8 win at Hofstra in Colonial Athletic Association women's lacrosse on Friday afternoon.
JMU upped its record to 8-5 overall and 3-1 against CAA opponents, while Hofstra now has a 7-6 overall mark and is 1-2 in CAA play.
Roguski scored off a pass from sophomore Ali Curwin (Pittsford, N.Y./Pittsford Sutherland) 1:45 into in the third overall overtime and second sudden-victory overtime period. (Each overtime is six minutes, with the entire six minutes of the first overtime played, while subsequent play is sudden-victory.)
End of Regulation: JMU rallied from three goals down with three goals in the final 7:14. Sophomore Steph Finley (Media, Pa./Sacred Heart) converted free-position attempts at 7:14 and 1:14 to pull the Dukes within one, 8-7.
Then, after redshirt sophomore Kaci Starkloff (Bel Air, Md./Bel Air) controlled the ensuing draw, Roguski fed the ball to redshirt senior Casey Ancarrow (Jarrettsville, Md./John Carroll), who scored with 48 seconds on the clock to tie the game.
Dukes sophomore Lexi Cross (Marriottsville, Md./Liberty) controlled the ensuing draw, and JMU had one last attempt to win in regulation, but a shot by Roguski was stopped by Hofstra goalkeeper Kelsey Gregerson.
First Half: Finley scored just 1:11 into the match to put JMU ahead 1-0 but Hofstra matched JMU goal for goal over the first 19 minutes of the first half, and the game was tied at 4-4 with 12:43 left.
But the Pride finished off the half with back-to-back goals in the final 2:48 to take a 6-4 lead into intermission. Taylor Albright tallied the go-ahead goal to give Hofstra a 5-4 lead, and April Iannetta found the net with just 13 seconds left in the half.
Second Half: Ancarrow converted a free-position attempt 1:24 into the second half to close the gap to 6-5. But Hofstra responded with consecutive scores, one by Emily von Hollen with 26:40 on the clock and another by Claire Brady at the 21:00 mark, to push the lead to 8-5.
