Navy women extend streak to 15 with OT win

Freshman Kaylie Davidson scored in overtime to send host Navy past Lehigh, 1-0, on Sunday as the Midshipmen (15-1, 3-0 Patriot League) won their 15th straight game, the longest active women's soccer winning streak in the nation. Junior midfielder Brittany Fruin sent a corner kick into the box in the closing minutes of the first overtime, and sophomore defender Jade Seabrook headed the ball to Davidson, who struck the ball on the volley into the right side of the net at 98:30. The goal was Davidson's second game-winner of the season and her second goal of the week. The Mids have scored five game-winning goals in the 88th minute or later this season; Navy defeated Lafayette, 3-2, on Friday night on the strength of a game-winning goal by Lily Kraemer in the 88th minute. "We've been very good on our set pieces," Navy coach Carin Gabarra said. "We tell our team to go after them and we executed it well. We also got better as the game went on today. We continued to fight and pressed more and put more pressure on the ball towards the ending minutes of the game. It was a quality game, but there weren't a lot of quality chances for either team." Junior goalkeeper Elizabeth Hoerner posted her second shutout of the season, making two saves against the Mountain Hawks (2-10, 0-3) and improving her record to 13-1. Navy will next play at Colgate on Friday in a battle of teams tied atop the league standings with nine points and 3-0 conference records.

More women: Freshman Ashley Spivey (McDonogh) scored twice to lead No. 9 Maryland to a 3-0 shutout of host North Carolina State. The Terrapins improved to 10-3-2 overall on the season and regained the top spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference with 16 points on a 5-1-1 mark. The Wolfpack fell to 5-9-0 overall and 0-5-0 in the conference. ... Host Mount St. Mary's (7-5-1, 2-1-1 Northeast Conference) battled Sacred Heart (5-7-1, 2-2-1) to a 0-0 draw. ... Towson (1-11-1, 1-4 Colonial Athletic Association) lost, 1-0, to visiting James Madison (4-9, 2-3).

Men: Fairleigh Dickinson (5-4-1, 2-0-1 Northeast Conference) scored twice in the second half to rally for a 2-1 victory against host Mount St. Mary's (3-8-0, 1-3-0). Will Jagger notched his first college goal for the Mount late in the first half; Godfred Baafi and Nicholas Walker scored for the Knights.
