Last minute PK lifts Shore ladies to 1st conference win

CHESTERTOWN — Junior forward Reagan Longridge’s penalty kick with less than a minute to play sent Washington College’s women to ring the victory bell Wednesday night, Sept. 20.

The Shore ladies defeated their guests from Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, 1-0, to even their Centennial Conference record at 1-1.

Longridge’s game-winner came with only 44.1 seconds remaining. She was awarded the PK after being pushed in the box.

Bryn Mawr’s best scoring chance came in the 11th minute. Off of a free kick, Sarah Lohrey’s shot glanced off the head of a Washington defender before bouncing off the right post.

Lucia Engelhardt gathered in the rebound from the 6 on the right side, but Washington keeper Hailey Sharpe came up with the save.

The locals nearly scored in the 38th minute but net-minder Natalia Chorzepa denied Ellen Daly on a shot from the top of the 18.

Washington had a goal waived off in the 55th minute when Maddy Gaydon, who put in a pass from Audrey Flanagan from the top of the 18, was whistled for being offside.

Longridge finally solved Chorzepa with a penalty kick that she deftly placed into the upper left corner of the net.

Washington led 13-5 in shots and 4-1 in corner kicks.

Sharpe was credited with three saves.

Washington defeated Bryn Mawr (2-4-1) for the sixth match in a row and leads the series, 15-6-3.

The Shore ladies improved to 4-2-1 on the season with Saturday’s 2-1 come-from-behind win in the rain at DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

Junior Kayla Streett scored the tying goal in the 67th minute and had the assist on what held up to be the winning goal — freshman Kaileigh Brady finishing off a corner kick from Streett  — in the 71st minute.

DeSales’ goal came on a penalty kick in the 24th minute.

Despite the Shore ladies’ 6-3 edge in shots in the first half, they had nothing to show for it.

That continued into the opening 20 minutes of the second half when they fired off seven shots — again to no avail.

Washington finished with a commanding 19-8 advantage in shots.
