The Game Story:
St. Mary's City, Md. -- Sophomore attacker Adam Gjerulff (Rockville, MD/Georgetown Prep) scored the game-winning goal off of an assist from freshman attacker Dave Mueller (Baltimore, MD/North County). With just 1.5 seconds remaining in the second overtime period, Gjerulff lifted the Seahawks of St. Mary's College to a 6-5 victory over Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) opponent Goucher College on Saturday afternoon.

Goucher (6-6, 3-3 CAC) took control of the contest early, scoring the only three goals of the first period. Senior attacker Matt Wilson opened the scoring off of an assist from sophomore attacker Patrick Tracy. Sophomore attacker Ian Montgomery then scored off of another assist from Tracy to give the visitors a 2-0 advantage. The Gophers would make it 3-0 after the first period when senior midfielder Tim Pistel scored with the assist credited to Montgomery. The Gophers opened up a 4-0 lead less than two minutes into the second period. Montgomery scored off of a feed by freshman defender Ned Phillips. The Seahawks would get on the board and reduce the lead to 4-1 at halftime when junior attacker Greg Scagliotti (Allentown, PA/The Hill School) scored off of an assist from Mueller.

Freshman attacker Pat Donovan (Arnold, MD/Spaulding) cut the deficit to 4-2 for the Seahawks with a goal off of an assist from senior midfielder Wayne Hickok (Baltimore, MD/Park School) in the opening minutes of the third period.
