Erin Todd's Goal with Two Seconds Left Propels Rangers to 11-10 Win

Orlando, Fla.: Freshman Erin Todd came up with the biggest goal in her short Regis career when she scored the game-winner with just two seconds left to lift Regis to a 11-10 victory over Georgian Court.

The two teams battled all day with neither team leading by more than three points.  Regis (3-1) scored the first goal to lead 1-0; they also had leads of 3-2, 9-8 and 10-8 before their exciting finish.  The Rangers tied the score at five on a goal by sophomore Hilary Duda with just 1:49 left in the first half.  Georgian Court's (0-1-1) Corinne Coyle then scored three straight goals. 

She scored one with 38 seconds left and another one 28 seconds later to give Georgian Court a 7-5 lead at half.  She then added another goal in the second half to put Georgian Court up 8-5.  Regis responded by scoring the next four goals with two of them supplied by sophomroe Emily Behr.

Georgian Court's Olivia Rotunno scored with just 2:36 left to tie the game at 10.  Regis sophomore goalkeeper Gianna Lombardi stopped a Georgian Court shot with just 28 seconds remaining to set up the winning goal by Todd.

Behr scored three goals to pace the Rangers, while Duda and freshman Emily Elkins each tallied two.  Todd had three assists to lead all players, while junior Danica Cutshall assisted on two other goals.

Lombardi picked up the win, her third, with 11 saves.

The Rangers next play Gannon on Friday in Orlando.
