W&J edges Grove City in shootout

WASHINGTON, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's soccer team saw its hopes for a Presidents' Athletic Conference title evaporate Wednesday night as host Washington & Jefferson slipped past the third-seeded Wolverines in an overtime shootout in the PAC Tournament semifinals at Alexandre Stadium. After a 1-1 tie through regulation and two 10-minute overtimes, the Presidents won a penalty-kick shootout 3-1.

Grove City broke a scoreless tie at 58:37 when senior forward Hannah Yang (Davis, Calif./Davis) scored her team-leading 17th goal of the season.

Grove City maintained its 1-0 lead until the closing seconds of regulation when W&J's Chrissy Marcius tracked down a loose ball and scored at the 89:54 mark.

Following a scoreless overtime, the teams proceeded to the shootout. Grove City scored on just one of its four attempts while W&J went 3-for-3.

Grove City (11-7-1) outshot W&J 13-12 for the match. W&J had a 5-1 shot edge in the overtime periods. W&J (13-5-1) had three corner kicks while Grove City had two.

Freshman goalkeeper Tiffany Yost (Christiana, Pa./Living Word) stopped six shots in 110 minutes of play.

Officially, the match is recorded as a draw. W&J, the No. 2 seed, will now host No. 4 Westminster in Saturday's finals.

Grove City will await a potential ECAC Championship Tournament invitation next Monday.
