Women's Soccer Falls To Rutgers-Newark, 2-1, in OT

BABSON PARK, Mass.—Senior Paige Lazar (Randolph, N.J.) scored with 10 seconds remaining in the first overtime as visiting Rutgers University-Newark defeated previously unbeaten Babson College, 2-1, in non-conference women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon at Hartwell-Rogers Field.

With the win, Rutgers-Newark is now 4-1-0 on the year, while Babson, which had recorded shutouts in each of its first four matches, falls to 4-1-0.

Junior Taylor Goldsborough (Williston, Vt.) scored her second goal of the season for the Beavers, while senior Meghan Tyson (Scarborough, Maine) contributed her second assist of the season.

Senior Sara Corson (Metuchen, N.J.) scored once for the Scarlet Raiders, who got two assists from sophomore Haley Savva (Wayne, N.J.).

The Green and White opened the scoring just 5:52 into the match when Goldsborough headed home the rebound of an attempt by Tyson for a 1-0 lead. First-year Emma Dineen (Hinsdale, Ill.) sent a cross into the box that was mishandled before bouncing to Tyson, whose header went off the crossbar before deflecting to Goldsborough.

Rutgers-Newark notched the equalizer in the 23rd minute, though as Savva played a long ball past the Babson back line for Corson, who placed her shot past charging Beavers' goalkeeper Elizabeth Mycock (Windham, Maine).

The Green and White, which held a 17-9 edge in shots, had its chances to regain the lead but was unable to solve Scarlet Raiders' sophomore goalkeeper Diana Carvalho (Newark, N.J.). She denied attempts from Tyson in the 33rd minute and made back-to-back saves on sophomore Kelsey Ford (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) following a scramble in the box in the 48th minute to keep the match deadlocked.

Lazar's game winner came just moments after she re-entered the game late in the first overtime. Following a throw-in on the left sideline, Savva played the ball into the box and Lazar beat a defender and touched the ball past Mycock, who was charging off her line for her first goal of the year.

Mycock finished with three saves for the Beavers, while Carvalho made six of her eight saves in the second half and overtime.

Both teams will return to action on Sunday at 1 p.m. as Babson hosts New England College, while Rutgers-Newark visits Wellesley.
