The Pirates’ best chance in the first half came in the 37th when Milne-Redhead found a classmate Caroline lipton (Alexandria, Virginia) in stride outside the 16-yard box who then made a one-touch pass into the zone for Julia Aronov (New Hyde Park, NY). A diving save was however made by the keeper, keeping the score 0-0.
The Pirates dominated the Knights, 7-6, and led by a wide margin in the corners, 5-0, in the second half, but they couldn’t make it on the scoreboard. First-year student Nathalie Tavana (Middletown, Connecticut) had one of the best chances when she landed a right-footed strike off the edge of the 16, but the shot missed.
In the first overtime, Mile-Redhead and senior Laura Hooper (Watford, England) both had chances on goal but were both saved. The Knights picked up the pace in the second extra period where they found the back of the net with three minutes left.
