Late Rally Not Enough Eagles Fall
The Cougars led 6-3 with one minute to play in the first half, but the Eagles scored with 11 seconds on the clock on an Allie Fultz goal and added another from Courtney Reinhold eight seconds later. Reinhold tied the contest at 6-6 only 54 seconds into the second half.
The Eastern momentum stopped there as the Cougars took advantage of a turnover to start a 6-0 run over the next 15 minutes. For the day, Misericordia (6-9, 2-3 Freedom) got five goals from Melina Juliano and Foley had three.
The two teams traded goals, and then the Eagles started their comeback.
Jocelyn Paul scored with 10:51 on the clock from Emmy Fisher. Kendall Rood scored 39 seconds later, and Reinhold scored from Fultz with 9:14 to play. Allie Gauthier finished a free position shot 30 seconds later to close the gap to 13-11.
After Julia Furniss scored with six minutes to play, Gauthier put away her second of the day to tie the score with four minutes left. The Eagles had two shots to take the lead, but Reinhold's offering went high and Misericordia's Erika Proctor stopped a Shannon Wilcox Free Position shot to give the Cougars the ball for Foley's final tally.
The Eagles, (5-9, 3-2 Freedom) will complete their slate of Conference games on Tuesday at 4:00 pm. If the Eagles can beat the Knights, they will still likely be in line for the second seed in the Freedom Championships.Box Score
