Lady Wolverines outlast Hope in double-overtime

HOLLAND, Mich. -- Junior Meg Tilley (Columbia, Md./Hammond) booted in a rebound with less than two minutes remaining in the second overtime to vault the Grove City College women's soccer team to a 4-3 victory at Hope College Friday afternoon.

Tilley scored after a shot attempt from sophomore Michelle Novosel (New Wilmington, Pa./Wilmington), giving the Lady Wolverines their second win in as many games this year.

Junior Diane Metzger (North Huntingdon, Pa./Norwin) collected a pair of goals in the first half while Autumn Hubbard (Nampa, Idaho/Nampa Christian) added a first-half goal to give Grove City (2-0) a 3-2 halftime lead.

Hope tied the game in the second half and the teams battled through the first overtime before Grove City broke through in the 113th minute. Novosel and Metzger each had two assists while Tilley was also credited with an assist.

In goal, senior Katy Turman (Abington, Pa./Abington) Made eight saves for Grove City, which outshot Hope 20-15. 

Grove City returns to action Saturday at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich.
