WINCHESTER, Va. – The Bridgewater College field hockey team went to overtime for the third time in seven games, losing 2-1 at Shenandoah on Wednesday.

All three of those extra time games have been by a 2-1 scoreline. The Eagles previously kicked off a three-game winning streak by beating St. Mary's 2-1 in overtime on September 8, and wrapped up a trip to Tennessee with a 2-1 OT loss at Sewanee on September 23.

The Hornets earned a penalty corner in the first minute of overtime. Morgan Payne played the insert and then finished off a pass from Kelsey Jones for the game winner.

Courtney Cooke scored in the first half for the Eagles off an assist from Caroline Quigley, after both Eagles had recorded multiple points in BC's 4-2 win over Ferrum on Saturday.

Jones assisted Taylor Hayes in the 17th minute of play to open the scoring for Shenandoah, with Cooke tying it up just 2:16 later.

Junior Ali Bishop made seven saves in the cage for Bridgewater.

Bishop turned away several good second half chances off penalty corners to keep the score at 1-1.

After blocking Morgan Stevens on the first shot attempt of the second half, Bishop stoned Kayla Alderman twice on another corner.

Shenandoah earned three more corners over the ensuing three minutes, and Bishop made a save on all three to fight off the sustained period of pressure.

The Eagles currently sit at 4-5, 1-1 ODAC, and will host Washington & Lee on Saturday evening.
