PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Sophomore Rachael Mack capped a furious rally with a goal 1:52 into overtime to lift No. 9-ranked Michigan past Temple 3-2 on Saturday afternoon in game one of the Temple Invitational at Geasey Field.
The Wolverines, who have now won their past six overtime games, trailed 2-0 at halftime.
Mack scored her second goal of the game on a direct penalty corner from senior Bryn Bain and freshman Aline Fobe. It was Michigan’s 12th penalty corner of the game.
The Wolverines trailed the Owls 2-0 but started the comeback with a Mack goal on a tip in from Fobe on a penalty corner at 47:40. The equalizer came eight minutes later when freshman Emy Guttman pounced on a rebound off a save to put in her first career goal in a Michigan uniform.
No. 6 Ohio State 2, Richmond 1 (OT)
With the stick of sophomore Paula Pastor-Pitarque, Ohio State defeated Richmond on a penalty stroke in a neutral-site matchup at JMU Field Hockey Complex in Harrisonburg, Va. After 70 minutes of regulation and two overtimes, Pastor-Pitarque sealed the win on the Buckeyes’ ninth penalty stroke attempt.
“We really came together as a unit on both ends of the field in the second half,” head coach Anne Wilkinson said. “Paula came up big for us and had a spectacular goal to send it to strokes.”

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Junior forward Kelsey Millman recorded two goals and an assist as Syracuse overcame an early 1-0 deficit to beat Wake Forest 4-1 on Saturday at Francis E. Henry Stadium on the campus of the University of North Carolina. Junior midfielder Haley Bomboy and senior forward Heather Susek also scored for the Orange. Syracuse improves to 2-1, while Wake Forest moves to 0-3.
