Oregon Women’s Lacrosse Survives Overtime Thriller with Canisius

Playing at the university’s rec fields for the first time in program history, Oregon just managed to outlast Canisius in a 12-11 overtime thriller. A shot from Canisius found the back of the net in the third minute of the extra period, but by dropping too many sticks on the ground after the make, Canisius cost themselves what would have been the game-winner. Mariah Gotti then made them pay from a free position shot in the second period of overtime for her fifth goal of the game, clinching the dramatic victory for the Ducks. Shannon Williams and Jill Zubillaga each added three goals of their own as Oregon overcame a 6-5 deficit at the half for revenge against a Canisius team that beat them in Eugene a season ago.
