WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Senior Abbey Rowe (Mt. Orab, Ohio/ Lynchburg) scored only goal of the match in a last-minute effort to secure a 1-0 victory against the Otterbein Cardinals on Wednesday night.
The Terriers' record now stands at 3-4-1, while the Cardinals' record falls to 5-2-1 on the season.
Although both teams fired shots in the first half, neither team was able to score.
The second half seemed to be going the same way as the first. Both teams were trying to find a way to score to avoid overtime play. Then, with the assistance of seniors Emily Syrjala (Seattle, Wash./ Seattle Prep) and Ashley Myer (Parma, Ohio/ Parma), Rowe found the back of the net for the winning goal for the Terriers.
The Cardinals held a 5-2 edge in shots and a 4-0 edge in corner kicks.
In goal, junior Alina Mille (Medina, Ohio/ Medina) played the entire match and finished with six saves.
Hiram will return to action on Saturday when they face Denison in a 5:30 p.m. matchup.
