|Catholic upset in first-round tournament game||Nov. 3, 2002|
WASHINGTON - St. Mary's upset Catholic, 2-1, in the quarterfinal round of the Capital Athletic Conference Tournament on Sunday afternoon.
The Seahawks, the No. 5 seed used two-first half goals, including a late first-half tally, and hung on to defeat the No. 4 seeded Cardinals.
Sophomore Rebecca Clark (Pasadena, Md./Seton Keough), above, put Catholic in front 1-0 with her team-leading 12th goal of the season in the 19th minute as she fired home a pass off the stick of freshman Christy Engstrom (Phoenixville, Pa./Springford).
But just eight minutes later in the 27th minute, the Seahawks' Sarah Hill tied it at 1-1 as she scored off a penalty corner.
St. Mary's (6-10) scored the eventual game-winner as Sarah Slone was able to put one past CUA keeper Katie Iannacone (Havertown, Pa./Villa Maria) with just two seconds before the half.
The Cardinals (6-11) had trouble mustering enough offense in the second half to get the equalizer as Catholic recorded just two shots in after halftime.
Iannacone finished with five saves while her counterpart, SMC goalie Whitney Fahrman also had five saves.
Catholic finishes the season 6-11 under first-year head coach Gia Fenoglio.
