Monmouth Battles Back from Deficit to Edge Wagner

The home-team Wagner Seahawks would not be deterred though; tying the game once again on a pair of Carolyn Clark goals. Wagner's Dana Marchitelli gave Wagner its first lead of the game with 11:54 to play before Clark's fourth goal of the game pushed the WC advantage to 10-8.

Feirstein's second goal of the game put the Hawks back just one with 9:08 showing on the clock but Marchitelli struck again to keep MU down a pair. Senior Shawn Evans (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) closed the gap again with 4:27 to play and 24 seconds later Feirstein knotted the game up at 11-11 with an unassisted marker. With 1:32 to play Feirstein struck again, regaining the lead for Monmouth; this time for good.

The Hawks sprinted out to a three goal lead with tallies by Molly O'Brien (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville), Fierstein and Evans before Wagner's Clark got the Seahawks on the board with 18:48 left in the first. MU would net three out of the next four goals, including two by Pollock, to take a 6-2 lead with just over 10 minutes remaining before halftime. Wagner responded well to the challenge on senior day, scoring three goals in the final 2:26 of the first half to cut the Monmouth lead to 6-5 at the break.

Feirstein led the Hawks with four goals, while Evans and Pollock each finished with a trio of scores. Mundorf had eight saves in net as MU outshot Wagner 30-22 in the match. The Hawks created 12 turnovers while committing just eight in the win. Clark single handedly kept the Seahawks in the game with her five-goal one assist effort on the day. Midfielder Teri Noll chipped in four points on three goals and an assist while Johnston finished with 11 saves.

Monmouth will be the third seed in next weekend's 2010 Northeast Conference Tournament, hosted on the campus of Sacred Heart. The Hawks will face Quinnipiac on Friday in the semifinals; game times are to be announced.
