Cards Forge 2-0 Lead at Wheaton but Can't Keep Lyons Caged as Home Squad Rallies for OT Win

Amanda Nickels '08 (#20, main photo) and Alex Bean '11 (#17, photo insert right side) spotted Wesleyan a 2-0 lead at Wheaton with 30 minutes remaining in the contest Wed., Sept. 26. But the Lyons came back with a pair of goals in regulation, the final coming during a penalty corner situation as time ran out, and scored 11:35 into sudden-death overtime to nail down a 3-2 triumph. It was the second time this season the hard-luck Cardinals have seen a 2-0 advantage evaporate into a 3-2 defeat. The squad will go after its first NESCAC win of the year when it travels to Conn. College for its next game Sat, Sept. 29.
