Williamstown, Mass. - Williams women's soccer continued its NCAA Tournament run, defeating Stevens Institute of Technology Ducks (16-3-0), 2-1. First-year Sydney Jones broke a 1-1 tie in the 83rd minute, ending an emotional second half comeback.
After falling behind 1-0, the Ephs gained some momentum late in the second half, after both teams went to their locker rooms for an injury break (Sarah Scire was injured in the 71st minute and did not return).
In the final 18 minutes, the Ephs roared to life as runs from Jones created chances on the flank. Stellar defense in the backfield closed off any offensive lanes for Stevens and in the 73rd minute, the Ephs forced a corner and netted the equalizer.
The Ducks had been dominate in the first 72 minutes of the match. Julia Panko and Misha Brewster lead the offense, each posting two shots on goal.
