MERION STATION, Pa. – Saint Joseph’s junior Nicole Gerdes tallied an equalizer with under a minute to play in regulation, but a goal by Paige Counsman with 5:13 to play in the second overtime period gave Pacific a 3-2 win over the SJU field hockey team on Thursday afternoon at Ellen Ryan Field.

Gerdes scored her first of the game to get Saint Joseph’s (1-6) on the board with 3:12 remaining in the second half on a pass from Jordan Martin to bring the Hawks within a goal at 2-1.  Then, with 55 ticks on the clock, Gerdes took a feed from Marin Vreeburg and sent it into the cage to knot the game at 2-2.  The goals are Gerdes’ second and third of the season.

After a scoreless first overtime, Counsman found a loose ball in front of the cage with just over five minutes to play in the match to give the Tigers the win.

Pacific (1-4) took a 1-0 lead into halftime as Melissa Maultsby scored her second of the season on an assist from Nicole Laskosky.  The Tigers doubled the lead when Leah Cofer notched her first of the year, from Erica Gordon, with 15:42 remaining in the second half.

However, the Hawks clawed back into the game and dominated the run of play for the remainder, leading to Gerdes’ two-goal effort.

Molly Macierz made 10 saves to earn the win for Pacific, while Rachel Barnett made eight stops for Saint Joseph’s.  Melanie Colozzi also added a key defensive save late in the first half to keep it a one-goal game.

The Hawks outshot the Tigers, 25-18, and enjoyed a 17-7 advantage in penalty corners, including a 6-1 edge in the overtimes.

Saint Joseph’s heads to Quinnipiac on Sunday for a 2:00 p.m. start against the Bobcats.  After that, the Hawks will enjoy a 10-day break before a three-game home stretch begins October 2 against Villanova.
