#5 Cortland Tops #10 Wesleyan 7-6 in OT to Advance

The two teams traded possessions as the clock ticked off until Felice fed a pass from behind the cage to Lambert, who ripped a high shot past Congleton for his team-leading 43rd goal off the season to tie the game at 6-6 with 6:09 remaining.

Neither team had a great look down the stretch, but Cortland was awarded possession with seven seconds remaining after a 30-second pushing call versus Wesleyan as Lambert was hit from behind at the top of the crease. Cortland held the ball to close out the fourth quarter and began overtime with possession.

As Cortland worked the ball around the perimeter, the man-up advantage expired without the Red Dragons squeezing off a shot. Cortland continued to work the ball until Felice threw a pass to Simensky, who was 18 yards straight out from the cage. He took a couple of steps and unleashed a low, skipping shot that snuck between Congleton's left foot and the right post for the game-winner.
