How it Happened
• After a scoreless first half that a lot of action on both ends of the field, Ursinus struck quickly in the second half. Erin Saybolt fired a long pass into the circle, where Brooke Overly collected it and slotted a low shot into the right corner of the goal just 47 seconds in.
• Overly then scored a pair of goals in just 25 seconds to push the Bears’ lead to 3-0 at the 48:42-mark in the game. Anna Hall took a hard shot from the top of the circle that was blocked by a Blue Jay defender. The ball ricocheted right to Overly, who one-timed it past sophomore Jodie Baris at the left post. She capped her hat trick on a one-timer off a cross from Brianne Nicholas.
• Hopkins got on the board off a penalty corner at 51:24. Freshman Seema Sajjan inserted the corner to junior Lucy Reider. She took a dribble at the top of the circle and then fired a shot into the lower left corner of the Bears’ cage to make it 3-1.
