Scots Use a Late Charge to Upend Oberlin

Wooster, Ohio Oberlin saw its season come to an end on Saturday afternoon, but not before putting forth another tremendous effort in a 12-9 loss at Wooster.

In a passing-the-torch type memento senior Ilyssa Meyer and first-year Grace Barlow each scored three goals in the game for the Yeowomen. With their respective hat tricks, Meyer ends the season with a team-high 32 goals, while Barlow concludes her rookie campaign second on the team with 28 tallies.

Bronwen Schumacher, Kate Hanick and Christina Perez-Tineo netted the other three Oberlin scores in the contest.

The Yeowomen raced out to a 4-1 lead with Hanick opening the game's scoring with a free-position finish just 55 seconds in. Wooster would quickly get back to even, but Meyer, Barlow and Perez-Tineo would follow with three straight OC goals over the next five minutes.

The Scots' offense would eventually find its rhythm rallying to take a 5-4 lead until Meyer's goal with the help of Schumacher would even the match back up at 5-5 with 6:56 left in the opening half. Schumacher would cash in her lone score of the game at the 3:38 mark, but two more Wooster deposits would give them a 7-6 lead at the break.

Barlow recorded the first goal of the second session to once again tie the game, but Wooster would gain control with a run of four straight goals over the next 10 minutes of play.

Meyer and Barlow would each add one more OC goal, but it was not enough to complete the comeback.

The game was nip-and-tuck throughout as shots were even at 26 each. The Scots finished with a slight 32-29 edge in ground balls and 12-11 advantage in draw controls.

With the loss the Yeowomen conclude the season at 4-11 overall and 3-5 in the NCAC. The three conference wins are the most since the 2002 season when the team finished 3-4.
