POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – In a hotly-contested game, Canisius pulled out a come-from-behind 10-9 victory over Marist on Sunday afternoon in the 2013 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship Final. The top-seeded Golden Griffins closed out the final 13:03 on a 5-2 run to secure the win and automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.

Offensively, senior Amanda Tuck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.), sophomore Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.)  led the way with three goals, while junior Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.) and freshman Allison Gionta (Eastport, N.Y.) each tallied three points.

In goal, senior Ashley Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.) made seven saves as she finished her career as one of Marist’s most successful goalkeepers in program history.

After giving an initial goal to the Golden Griffins 90 seconds into the game, the Red Foxes slowly scratched away with four consecutive goals. Tuck started the goal rally by taking a Tierney Larson (Fairfield, Conn.) pass and one-timing a shot by Canisius’ keeper.

Five minutes later, Viscount scored the go-ahead goal at 21:06.

Romano notched back-to-back goals at 14:14 and 9:47 to put the Red Foxes up 4-1. Gionta earned a point on Romano’s second tally as she fed her teammate with a one-timer pass.

A Meghan Cuddy goal at 4:17 would close out the scoring in the first half.

At the break, Canisius was outshooting Marist 16-12; Casiano’s five saves, as well as staunch defensive pressure forcing wild Golden Griffin shots helped Marist in its 4-2 advantage.

In the second half, the teams traded goals within a minute of each other as Canisius’ Maria Kotas scored at 26:43 before Tuck answered off of a Romano assist at 25:52.

Consecutive goals by Canisius’ Morgan Leonard would knot it at 5-5.

In the punch-for-punch nature of the game, the Red Foxes responded with two unanswered goals of their own at 18:44 with a Viscount free-position tally and a 13:21 with a Larson to Gionta hook-up. With her two assists in the contest, Larson became the first athlete in the history of the MAAC with 50 or more assists in a single-season.

Over the final 13:03, the Golden Griffins, the two-time defending MAAC Champions would show their veteran guile with a 5-2 run to close the game. Kotas, the eventual MVP, notched three of the goals, including the game-winner at 3:21. Marist’s goals were registered by Tuck at 12:00 and Viscount at 8:22.

A hard-fought game throughout the Red Foxes went down fighting until the final whistle as the Golden Griffins held on for the 10-9 win.

For the game, Canisius outshot Marist 30-21 with a 17-15 advantage in shots on goal. Behind seven combined draw controls between Tuck (4) and Romano (3) helped Marist take a 12-9 margin in draw controls. A leading factor in the Golden Griffins success was just five team turnovers in the game.

After the contest, Ashley Casiano (7.62 GAA, .543 save percentage), Amanda Tuck (4g-1a-4dc)and Jamie Romano (3g-1-6dc) were recognized on the All-Tournament for their efforts in semifinal and championship game action.

With the defeat, Marist finishes its season with a 9-10 overall record, while Canisius improves to 14-4.
