ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. – Brooke Dixon (Clayton, Del./Smyrna) rocketed a shot into the right corner with just 3 minutes, 48 seconds elapsed in the first overtime period to lift McDaniel to a 2-1 victory at St. Mary’s (Md.) in non-conference field hockey action on Tuesday.

            With the win, the Green Terror (1-2) gets its first win of the season despite being outshot by the Seahawks (2-2) by an 18-16 margin.
            McDaniel carried play in the extra session, earning the lone penalty corner and firing the only three shots of the period before Dixon’s game-winner.
            After a scoreless first half, Jessica Largent (Denton, Md./North Caroline) put back a Lindsay Riordon (Monkton, Md./Hereford) shot-and-save to open the scoring at the 47:09 mark.
            Nearly four minutes later, Emily Norris rebounded an Allie Skiest shot-and-save to even the game at 1.
            Freshman Stephanie Thompson (Glen Burnie, Md./Chesapeake), making her first collegiate start in the cage, made eight saves for the victory. Emma Lauhoff made five stops at the other end.
