Loss 14-15 Double OT
Friday afternoon’s rivalry matchup proved to be the most exciting game of the Dragons’ season. The combination of St. George's biggest rivalry game and Senior Day brought out great team energy. Sofia Tonelli ‘19 got the scoring started for SG, followed by Riley Cochrane ‘21 and Katie George ‘19. The Dragons’ defense struggled to adjust to the Middlesex attackers in the middle of the critical scoring area, but were able to adjust to their man-to-man marks midway through the half. Down 4-8 at halftime, the Dragons were ready to put the work in to catch up.

After a relentless effort, the Dragons were able to score 10 second-half goals and pulled themselves out of a four-goal deficit twice, thanks to four second-half goals by Peyton Mulhern ‘19 and three more from Cochrane. Both Mulhern and Cochrane hit milestones during the Dragons’ offensive run -- Mulhern scored her 100th career goal and Cochrane registered her 100th career point. George was also able to dominate the draw, coming up with six total draw controls and shifting the momentum countless times back to the Dragons. With 1:44 left, Cochrane tied the game and helped send it to an OT battle.

Overtime brought the game to a whole new level of excitement. Mulhern won the opening OT draw and pushed the ball into the Dragons’ offensive end. Lyla Day ‘21 earned a free position shot off a Middlesex foul and found Cochrane, but the Middlesex goalkeeper made the save and earned possession for her team. After a missed Middlesex shot and a save by Lizzy Maimone ‘19, the Dragons got the ball back, but turned it over after a missed pass along the end line. However, Middlesex failed to clear the ball and Madi Aumann ‘19 picked up a loose ball on the Dragons’ offensive end to regain possession. Cochrane had another chance that went wide and Middlesex regained possession again. Their attackers pushed the ball all the way downfield and earned a free position with four seconds left, but the shot went wide and the first half of overtime expired. The two teams went back to the draw and Middlesex came out with possession this time around. Middlesex took a shot and Maimone made yet another save. Olivia Mastrangelo ‘19 came up with a huge ground ball at the top of the scoring area, but the Dragons turned over the ball again. Maimone came up with a third save in OT after a point-blank opportunity by Middlesex, but the Dragons then turned the ball over for a third time on a missed pass. Middlesex charged downfield and put a hard shot into the back of the cage to come out on top, 14-15.

Every senior made an impactful play in the Dragons’ loss and the entire class earned “Player of the Game” honors. The Dragons are excited to build on the effort, fight, and grit they showed against Middlesex as they head into the offseason and begin to think about next spring. Thank you to our seniors and to our fans and supporters for a good 2019 season!
