Hereford backed Dulaney's No. 9 field hockey team into a corner much of the second half, but the Lions pulled out a key Baltimore County victory, 1-0, in overtime.

Kate Horsman scored on a feed from Dana Poist with three seconds left in the 10-minute overtime, but the victory really belonged to the Lions' defense, which fought off 18 Bulls penalty corners in the second half - two with no time left on the clock.

Goalie Jenny Winders made 10 saves and a handful of critical clears in the second half as she and defenders Tara Williams, Holly Batton, Ana Heneberry and Megan Halliday held off a persistent Bulls offense. Seven of Hereford's corners came in the last five minutes and four in the final minute.

"Our goalie had so many great saves. She was all over the place. You could tell that she really wanted it," said Horsman, a senior captain. "The defense played amazing. Whenever it was in the circle they tried their hardest to hit it out in a good way ... pass it to a player and get it up the side."

In the game, the host Bulls (5-2-1 overall, 4-1 county) outshot the Lions 18-7 and had 22 penalty corners compared with two for Dulaney (5-1-1, 4-0).

But as the seven-on-seven overtime wound down, Horsman kept a Dulaney break going by outrunning a defender on the left side. She sent the ball to Poist just to the right of the top of the circle. Bulls goalie Sam Bergman rushed out to cut off the angle, but the ball got past her and Poist send it toward the goal line where the charging Horsman finished it off.
