Women’s soccer falls to Nyack in overtime

PHILADEPHIA – The Philadelphia University women's soccer fell to Nyack 3-2 in a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) match Saturday afternoon on Ravenhill Field on a goal scored right before the buzzer sounded to signal the end of overtime.

Tauntyonah Marie-Guinter scored on a shot from 30-yards out after being the recipient of a rebound left on a Brianna Sparrow shot, which was initially stopped by Ram keeper Deanna Messner (Willow Grove, Pa./Archbishop Wood). Marie-Guinter's shot in the open net crossed the line just before the clock hit zero. It was her second goal of the afternoon.

Philadelphia (1-3-1, 1-2-1 CACC) laid claim to the early 1-0 lead on Mary Kate Ulmer's (Williamstown, N.J./Williamstown) first collegiate goal, an unassisted tally at the 13:40 mark.

Nyack (1-4-0, 1-2-0 CACC) came back with the next two goals to take a 2-1 lead at the half. The first goal came from Zoe Mould at 20:08 to tie the score and Marie-Guinter put the Warriors in front with 1:36 left before the half.

Megan Sullivan's (West Deptford, N.J./West Deptford) first goal of the 2016 season, with an assist from Taylor Mysza (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) equalized the match at 2-2 with 36:02 left in the second half.

Messner finished the match with three saves, while Nyack's Julianna Kranes recorded six saves.

Both teams attempted 10 shots during the 100 minutes.

Philadelphia will look to rebound when it heads to Molloy for a non-conference clash on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 4 p.m.
