HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – Miri Taylor’s goal in the 87th minute salvaged a 1-1 tie for the Hofstra University women in a Colonial Athletic Association game against William & Mary at Hofstra Soccer Stadium Sunday afternoon.
The Pride (9-5-1, 3-2-1) had numerous chances, outshooting the Tribe (5-7-1, 2-2-1) , 37-13. Hofstra had 17 shots on goal but William & Mary goalkeeper Katelyn Briguglio made a career-high 16 saves. Hofstra also hit the post on one other attempt.
William & Mary got on the board first when Sarah Segan chipped a shot over Hofstra keeper Jenna Borresen, who had come off her line in an attempt to play the ball, 2:50 into the second half. Segan had the same chance in the first half but her shot bounced over the crossbar.
Taylor knotted the score late in the game, working a give-and-go with Sabrina Bryan and sliding a shot past Briguglio into the far corner.
The Pride had two chances in the second extratime, but Briguglio made two saves. The Tribe had a chance in the first extra period, but Borresen came up with the save, one of six the redshirt senior produced.
Hofstra plays at Drexel University Thursday at 6 p.m.
