POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - Two consecutive meetings and two consecutive overtime outcomes; that seems to be the story whenever Marist and Lafayette face off in women's lacrosse contests recently. One year after the Red Foxes earned a 13-12 double overtime win in Easton, it was the Leopards turn to pull out an overtime win. On Thursday afternoon, Lafayette upended Marist by a final score of 8-6. In a back-and-forth game, the Red Foxes were led by a hat trick by sophomore Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.) and 12 saves by junior goalie Ashley Casiano (South Windsor, Conn.)

The visitors began the game off fast as they had two quality scoring opportunities within the first four minutes of play. Both a Cammie Linville shot and an Addie Godfrey free position attempt were denied by Casiano. This was just the beginning of a huge effort in goal by the junior.

Lafayette finally broke through on to the scoreboard with successive goals at 25:25 and 22:41.

Down 2-0, the Red Foxes were undaunted and quickly answered back with a goal of their own 2:28 later at 20:13. Junior Amanda Tuck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) was the scorer, as she netted her first goal of the young season.

Following an Addie Godfrey goal that increased Lafayette's lead to 3-1 at 12:15, Romano helped the Red Foxes go into halftime down just 3-2 with her fifth goal of the season at 8:44.

At the break, the Red Foxes were outshot at 13-4, but were able to be within one goal due to five saves by Casiano.

Coming out in the second half, Marist started out fast with two goals in the first 3:41 of play. Senior Ariel Kramer (Syracuse, N.Y.) led off the scoring with a tally at 29:38. Romano bookended this run of quick goals with her second of the game at 26:19. A leading factor in these goals was successive draw controls by Kramer.

The senior attacker registered her third consecutive draw control after Romano's goal, but in this case it took a little longer for the fans at Tenney Stadium to see their next goal.

Marist notched its fourth unanswered goal in a row on a Kelly Condon marker at 17:14. Following a restart from the end-line, the senior attacker from Roslyn, Pa. cut through Lafayette's defense from the side and snapped off a shot past goalkeeper Mimi Connell.

The Leopards were finally able to halt the Red Foxes streak of goals with a Courtney Landolfe tally at 14:55.

With just a one goal lead, Casiano surpassed her first half total of five saves with six in a span of 12 minutes down the stretch in crunch time. From 14:30 to 2:37, the junior goalkeeper made three saves off of close-in Lafayette shots and even more impressively, three saves off of free-position shots.

A third goal by Addie Godfrey evened the score at 5-5 with 2:28 remaining in regulation.

Following a Lafayette draw control, the Leopards worked the clock down to one minute to play, before Laura Kleiber connected on a free-position shot at 0:57 to give the visitors a 6-5 lead.

Unshaken, the Red Foxes won the subsequent draw control and calmly worked a game-tying possession out over the final seconds of the half. After Connell denied a Condon free-position attempt, Tuck kept possession of the ball for Marist before feeding Romano, who took the pass from behind the net and cut across the top of the crease and fired the game-tying goal in at 0:18.

In overtime, the Leopards proved why they were able to push #17 Penn State to the brink on Feb. 25. Defensively, they didn't allow the Red Foxes to put together a sustained possession or get a shot on goal, while they netted two goals of their own.

After 66 minutes of action, Lafayette had earned a hard-fought back-and-forth battle over the host Red Foxes by a score of 8-6.

As a team, Lafayette outshot Marist 26-20 and held a 26-19 advantage in ground balls. Led by strong efforts by Kramer (5) and Romano (3) Marist controlled 11 draws versus 6 for Lafayette.

Individually, Casiano stopped a game-high 12 shots for the Red Foxes. Romano led the offense with her second consecutive hat trick. Sophomore Bailey Knapton (Canandaigua, N.Y.) led the defense with a pair of caused turnovers.

The Red Foxes will be in action at home again on Saturday, March 3 when they host Albany in a 1 p.m. matchup.
