Recaps of the D1, D2, D3 IWLCA North-South All-Star Games

The North's Ellie Hilling, who played at Notre Dame, made seven saves in the second half to help the North rally from a 6-4 deficit at halftime to win the 2013 IWLCA Division I North-South All-Star game, held Sunday at Cabrini College in Radnor, Pa.

With the South holding a two-goal lead to start the second period, Hilling made seven saves while allowing only two goals while her teammates scored five goals after the break, including the game-winner with 2:58 left in regulation, to win 9-8. Janine Hiller (Stony Brook) led her North team with three goals while the South's Jasmine DePompeo (Navy) also scored three goals for the South to tie Hillier for the scoring lead in the game.

The North opened the game with a goal by Stony Brook's Demmianne Cook 3:30 into the contest. They took a 2-0 lead as Hillier notched the first of her three goals three minutes later.

The South went on a three-goal run to take the lead, scoring three times over a 3:30 period. Katie Oliverio (Louisville) scored on an 8-meter before DePompeo scored on a crease roll to tie the game. A Stephany Parcell (Temple) conversion gave the South their first lead of the game with 15:15 left in the first half.

After the North's Danielle Etrasco (Boston University) scored off a feed from Rachel Burek (Albany) to tie the game, the South went on another three-goal run to take a three-goal lead. Temple's Charlotte Swavola won the ensuing draw and took it to the cage to take back the lead. A save by Kim Kolarik (Virginia) started a transition that led to a goal by DePompeo, and a Dina Jackson (Georgetown) goal with 5:55 to play put the South on top 6-3. The North's Chloe Mangan (Fairfield) won the draw and Hillier scored her second goal of the game just over a minute after Jackson to pull within two; the two teams went into the break with the South holding a 6-4 lead.

The North pulled within one as Cook scored on an 8-meter six minutes into the second half, but the South pushed the lead back to two as Jackson scored her second goal with just under 20 minutes to play.

Mangan scored her only goal of the game to pull the North within one, and after Hilling made three consecutive saves on a South possession, Hillier scored her third goal of the game with 10:57 remaining in the half to tie the game at 7-7. Columbia's Kelly Buechel won the draw and fed Cook, who assisted Etrasco's goal to give the North their first lead of the game since the opening minutes.

A South draw control by La Salle's Melanie Sarcinello set up a goal by DePompeo as the game was tied for a fourth time with 7:52 to play.

The game-winner came off a goal by Notre Dame's Jenny Granger, who converted a feed from Cori Murray (Massachusetts) with 2:58 left in regulation. Hillier won her second draw of the game, and the North was able to hold on for the win.
