BUFFALO, NY – Daniel Radlich scored the game winning goal 7:00 minutes into overtime to lift the Medaille College women’s soccer team to a 3-2 win over visiting Hilbert College Wednesday night. The Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) win moves the Mavericks to 2-2 in the league and 9-3-1 overall.

After a scoreless first half, Medaille’s Chelsea Buzyniski opened the scoring at 57:04 to give the home team the early advantage. Radlich would finish a Buzyniski feed in front of the net just 1:40 later and the Mavericks had a quick two-goal cushion.

Former Maverick Tricia Knight (Sardinia, NY/Pioneer) would respond for the Hawks with consecutive goals at 72:45 and later at 86:51 to knot the game at 2-2.

In overtime, Radlich would score off a header from Jenna O’Malley to beat Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) and send the Mavericks bench into a frenzy. Radlich, only a sophomore is the first Maverick to reach the 100-point plateau and her five points Wednesday night gives her 102 for her young career.

Goodwin recorded seven saves for the Hawks and Courtney DeVille (Kenmore, NY/Kenmore West) picked up her first collegiate assist in a losing effort.

The Hawks (2-8-1, 0-2-1) will next face Frostburg State on Saturday in an important AMCC showdown in Maryland.
