from press release

LEXINGTON, Va. - Trinity (Conn.) sophomore midfielder Rachel Romanowsky (Hampstead, N.H./Derryfield) scored the game-winning goal on a free-position shot with just 32 seconds left in the second overtime period as the No. 11 Bantams defeated seventh-ranked Washington and Lee, 14-13, in women's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon at Watt Field.

The Bantams (5-0) held a slight 5-4 edge at halftime on the strength of three goals from Romanowsky, but the Generals responded scoring four of the first six goals in the second stanza to take an 8-7 lead at the 18:23 mark. Trinity senior attacker Jesse Schultz (Troy, N.Y./Emma Willard) then tied the contest, 8-8, when she made good on a free-position shot at 17:52, however, the Generals outscored the Bantams, 4-1 over the next 12:18 to take a 12-9 lead with 4:04 remaining in the contest. TC then responded with three-straight goals, including the game-tying marker with three seconds left by sophomore attacker Caitlin Irvine (Westwood, Mass./Hotchkins), which sent the game to extra sessions and set up Romanowsky's heroics.

The Generals (3-3) were led by sophomore midfielder Emmy Mathews (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr), who tied a career-high with five goals. Sophomore attacker Wilton Megargel (Charlottesville, Va./St. Anne's-Belfield) also tied a career-high with three goals, while junior attacker Britten Mathews (Richmond, Va./Collegiate) notched two goals and one assist. Junior attacker Meredith Freeman (St. Louis,Mo./MICDS) chipped in one goal and one assist, while senior attacker Katie Flippen (Norfolk, Va./Norfolk Academy) and sophomore attacker Kate Speare (Wallingford, Pa./Strath Haven) added one goal apiece. Sophomore goalkeeper Katharine Farrar (Lexington, Va./Episcopal) played all 72:00 minutes and registered 15 saves.

Romanowsky's scoring efforts were supplemented by Irvine, Schultz and junior attacker Jennifer Calver (Barnard, Vt./Holderness), who recorded two goals each. Junior midfielder Sarah Remes (Silver Spring, Md./National Cathedral) and senior attacker Carrie Disa (Wilbraham, Mass./Minnechaug) chipped in one goal apiece. First-year Gina Dinallo (West Hartford, Conn./William H. Hall) played the entire duration between the pipes and recorded 10 saves.
