Virginia 13, Boston U. 9

May 15, 2005

Senior attacker Cassie Abel scored 38 seconds into the double overtime to give Colorado College a 10-9, come-from-behind victory over SUNY Cortland on Sunday afternoon in a regional championship game at CCs Stewart Field.

The sixth-ranked Tigers improved to 12-1 and earned a berth in the national semifinals for the first time in the programs 11-year history.

Abel broke into the crease from behind the left post, took a feed from senior attacker Jen Alpern who was high in the slot, and beat Cortland State goaltender Regina Grosso with a high shot just inside the far post. Abel finished with a game-high five points on three goals and two assists.

Ali Bourgal put the Red Dragons in front 9-8 with an unassisted goal with 1:21 remaining in the first six-minute overtime, but sophomore midfielder Hannah Murtaugh tied the game 17 seconds later after taking a feed from Abel.

Kate Fitzgerald finished with two goals and an assist for CC, while Helen Sneath added two goals.
