VIDEO: Tatnall hockey edges Ursuline in OT
Tatnall captain Shay Cannon scored on a penalty corner with 1:56 remaining in overtime, giving her Hornets a 2-1 home victory over Ursuline Thursday.
Hornet goaltender Abby Horgan had just made two point-blank shots in the extra session when Tatnall was able to move the ball into their offensive zone and earned a series of penalty corners.
On their 3rd try of the sequence, and 20th corner of the game, Cannon took the entry pass from Cynthia Sellar, made a nifty juke move on a defender, and slapped home a shot from the center of the circle to put an end to the battle.
The teams traded first half goals, with Caroline Zuleba scoring off an assist from Jennifer Davis for Tatnall, while Nina Budischak countered for Ursuline twelve minutes later.
Tatnall's 5th straight win moved them to 7-1 on the season, while Ursuline slipped to 5-3-1 despite 10 saves from Rocio Posada.
