CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- Alli Dudley scored the game-winning goal with 3:18 left in the second extra period as Washington College upset fifth-ranked Gettysburg College, 12-11, in double overtimeon Saturday. The Shorewomen (9-4, 5-2 Centennial) broke a 17-game losing streak to the Bullets (12-2, 6-1) and clinched a berth in the five-team Centennial Conference Tournament with the win.

Dudley's game-winner came off an assist from Emily Hubley after Hubley was awarded a free-position attempt with 3:21 to go. Instead of taking her shot, Hubley passed to Dudley, who cut in front of the goal and beat Gettysburg goalie Catherine Towers for the golden-goal game-winner. The Bullets had two chances to win the game early in the second overtime, but a free-position shot by Maggie Connolly hit the post 12 seconds into the period and a shot by Kelsey Markiewicz was saved by Washington goalie Allison Remenapp with 5:08 left.

The two teams battled back and forth from the opening draw. Washington struck first when Katherine Vincent scored off a Hubley pass 26 seconds into the contest. Gettysburg responded with a goal by Bridget Kenny off a Katie Blumenthal feed with 28:15 left and a Mandy Buell tally with 26:13 remaining in the first half, but Washington evened the score at 2-2 on a free-position goal by Carley Kendall with 21:17 to go. Maggie Connolly then netted a free-position goal of her own with 19:06 remaining before Carly Eisenbrandt tied the game at 3-3 with 16:32 to play before halftime. Markiewicz put the Bullets back in front, 4-3, with 15:08 left, but Eisenbrandt knotted the score at 4-4 with 2:39 remaining before the break.

The Bullets took a 7-5 lead to open the second half on a goal by Kenny with 24:53 remaining and a free-position tally by Loren Pruitt with 21:50 to go.

The Bullets then ran off three consecutive goals to force the first overtime. Markiewicz scored two free-position goals just 14 seconds apart with 6:05 and 5:51 left, respectively, before Connolly netted the tying goal with 3:48 remaining.

Washington scored quickly to open the full-time, six-minute first overtime period as Eisenbrandt put Washington in front, 11-10, just 49 seconds in. A shot by Connolly was stopped by Remenapp with 18 seconds remaining, but Connolly picked up the ground ball after a scrum and fed Pruitt for a goal with 4.8 seconds on the clock to even the score at 11-11 and force the second overtime.

Markiewicz led Gettysburg with three goals in the loss, while Connolly had two goals and one assist and Pruitt and Kenny had two goals a piece. Shannon Keller started the game in goal for the Bullets, but made just two saves while allowing nine goals in 48:51 of playing time. Towers played the rest of the way and made three saves while allowing three goals.
