Doyle Sets Assist Record as Spiders Beat Temple

Down 17-8 the Owls finally found their offense again and made a comeback attempt with five straight goals over the next six minutes thanks to gaining every single draw control during that stretch. Parcell scored the first and fourth goals of the 5-0 run, while Molly Seefried, Swavola and Schweitzer also scored. The final goal by Schweitzer put Temple within four, 17-13 with 13:20 remaining.

Stevenson scored her seventh goal for Richmond to stop the run, but Parcell answered to keep the margin at four. The Spiders then dramatically slowed the pace of the game on their next possession, eating up valuable time for the Owls who did not get the ball back until after a save by Megan Clothier with 5:29 remaining.

Temple then made quick work of scoring another goal as the Owls cleared the ball and made their way down to Richmond's end where Parcell scored her fourth goal of the game. Up by just three, 18-15 with 4:57 remaining, Richmond called timeout and then proceeded to earn the next draw control and took the clock down to 3:11 before Mary Flowers had an open shot and put one past Clothier.

Markunas earned yet another draw for Temple, and after Swavola's free position shot was saved by Roebuck, the Owls quickly got another attempt and Cohen notched her fourth goal of the game to keep Temple's hopes alive at 19-16.

It was unfortunately as close as the Owls would get, with Richmond scoring the final and only goal of the last three minutes in the final six seconds of play.

Temple will return home for its final two regular season games, needing to get back on the winning track if the Owls are to earn a spot in the upcoming A-10 Tournament. First up is Saint Joseph's on Friday, April 20 at 3:00 p.m. as Temple celebrates Friends of Jaclyn Week with its adopted sister, Lily Adkins, and her family.
