Barry's late scores help Richmond come back to defeat Lock Haven
LOCK HAVEN, Pa. -- Sophomore Rebecca Barry scored two goals in a four-minute span to help No. 16 Richmond defeat Lock Haven 3-2 on Friday. The win clinches the Spiders' consecutive Atlantic 10 regular-season championship.
This is the Spiders' eighth Atlantic 10 regular-ceason championship in the last 11 years. Richmond wrapped up the No. 1 seed in next weekend's Atlantic 10 Tournament at UMass. Richmond still has one regular season game remaining on Sunday at La Salle.
For the third game in a row, the Spiders (14-4, 6-0 Atlantic 10) fell behind 1-0 and still found themselves trailing with less than 11 minutes left to play. At the 10:19 mark, junior Christina Amorose deflected a shot by freshman Amy Cooke into the cage to tie the game.
Lock Haven (11-8, 2-4 Atlantic 10) regained the lead with 6:57 remaining on a goal by Molly Urey. The Bald Eagles' lead only lasted 45 seconds.
The Spiders were awarded a penalty corner and senior Catherine Ostoich found Barry for the first of two goals in less than four minutes. Barry's second goal came with just 2:23 remaining off Cooke's second assist of the game.
Barry has now scored two goals in four of the last six games, including two goals in less than a minute in the Spiders' win against Temple on Oct. 21.
