deciding shoot-out goal, as the nationally ranked No. 8 Continentals

the second round of the NCAA Division III women's soccer championships
at Love Field on Sunday.
The final score at the end of regulation and two overtime periods was
2-2. Hamilton senior Caitlin McGilley tied a career-high with 13 saves,
including three in overtime, and also stopped Tufts' final kick of the
shoot-out to set the stage for Miller.
Tufts won the coin toss at the beginning of the shoot-out and elected to
shoot first. Senior Joelle Emery (Bedford, NH) sailed her shot
wide left, and the ensuing attempt by Continental Erica Dressler was
stopped by Tufts sophomore goalie Kate Minnehan (Hopkinton, NH).
The next three shooters for each team scored. Tufts' Sarah Nolet (Los
Altos, CA), first-year Geneva DeGregorio (Whately, MA) and
sophomore Ali Maxwell (Exeter, NH) scored and Hamilton's Lauren
Farver, MacKenzie Pelletier and Laura Stirrat found the net.
With the shoot-out score tied 3-3, Jumbo sophomore Whitney Hardy

team-leading 19th goal from Cara Cadigan (Nahant, MA) in the 58th
minute. Maxwell had the assist. Hamilton's Anne Graveley scored her
ninth goal in the 65th minute to put the Continentals back on top, 2-1.

Sophomore Fanna Gamal (Albany, CA) tied the score again for Tufts
in the 70th minute when she corralled a loose ball off a corner kick for
her fourth score this year. The goal was unassisted.
