For Immediate Release: Mansfield ties nationally ranked West Chester 2-2

Mansfield- Senior Caroline Furmato (Pt. Pleasant,NJ/Pt. Pleasant) scored her first two goals of the season to bring Mansfield back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to tie #12 ranked West Chester.

West Chester started the scoring on a Danielle Gerz goal in the 22nd minute of the game. 

West Chester had a two goal advantage in the 36th minute when a ball deflected off a Mansfield defender into the goal.

Mansfield came back in the second half scoring two minutes into the half.  Furmato headed in an indirect  kick from  Anita Valerio (Manalapan,NJ/Manalapan).

Mansfield tied the score six minutes later when Furmato took a pass back from Colleen Corcoran (Allentown/ Central Catholic) and shot it past the West Chester goalie off the inside of the left post.

Mansfield goalie Justine Segear (Wilkes-Barre/Coughlin) made a big save for the Mountaineers with less than two minutes to go in the first overtime when a West Chester player got a quick shot off from ten yards away.

With one minute left in the second overtime, there was a scramble for the ball, and Mansfield’s Lyndi Keiser (Mechanicsburg/Mechanicsburg) took a shot that was saved by the Golden Rams goalie as she fell on the outside of the post.

Mansfield moves to 2-9-2 on the season and 2-4-1 in the PSAC east.
