DURHAM, N.H.- Senior midfielder Kristin Iarrusso (Southwick, Mass.) scored the game winning goal in overtime to lift the University of New Hampshire field hockey team over the University of Maine 1-0 in overtime. The Wildcats improve to 10-5 overall and 5-1 in the AMERICA EAST Conference. Maine falls to 7-10 and 1-5 in conference play.
Iarrusso scored on a penalty corner with just under two minutes into the extra session off an assist from juniors Kelly Stowe (Topsfield, Mass.) and Jessica Russell (Harrisville, R.I.) for the win.
The two teams battled through a scoreless first and second halves with slippery conditions factoring in both teams play.
Maine had a chance to win the game in the second half on a penalty shot. Junior goaltender Amy Agulay (London, Ontario) made an impressive save to keep the Wildcats in the game.
Agulay finished with seven saves and Maine netminder Danielle Burke stopped two shots.
UNH travels to Boston College for a 7:30 p.m. game Tuesday.
