The Game Story:
TOWSON, MD An unassisted goal by David Jadin (Chanhassen, MN/The Blake School) 3:56 into overtime today provided Goucher with its first Capital Athletic Conference win of the season, a 7-6 triumph over Mary Washington.

The freshman long-stick midfielder's first collegiate goal allowed the Gophers (2-4, 1-2 CAC) to snap a seven-game losing streak in games deadlocked at the end of regulation. The last time Goucher prevailed in overtime was an 8-7 victory over Randolph-Macon on March 15, 2003.

Overtime didn't seem very likely today with the Gophers leading 6-4 with less than a minute remaining in regulation, but goals by Scott Fletcher with :32 left to play and Tommy Park with :15 showing on the clock allowed the Eagles (2-6, 1-3 CAC) to catch up.

In overtime, sophomore goalkeeper Austin Main (Berlin, MD/Stephen Decatur) of the Gophers made two saves, raising his total for the game to 14. His counterpart, Eric Everitt, finished with 10 saves, including one in OT.

Despite being out-shot, 16-8, the Gophers managed to reach halftime tied with Mary Washington at 2-2. They took their first lead of the contest 1:10 into the third quarter on an unassisted extra-man goal by Sam Fitzpatrick (Littleton, CO/Arapahoe) and, by the end of the period, they were ahead 5-3.

Even though they extended their winning streak against the Eagles to four games, the Gophers still trail the all-time series with Mary Washington, 12-6.
