WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – It took nearly the entire 80 minutes, but No. 10 Delaware eventually came out on top over William & Mary, 3-2, in overtime Sunday afternoon at Busch Field.

Tied 2-2 at halftime, neither team scored in the second half as the Blue Hens were headed to overtime for just the second time this season.

Things were pretty uneventful in the extra period until UD sophomore Greta Nauck (Krefeld, Germany/Gymnasium am Moltekeplatz) rebounded off her own shot and knocked in the game-winner at 79:50 for her league-leading 15th tally of the season.

Earlier in the game, senior Meghan Winesett (Centreville, Va./Westfield) posted her first goal of the season, also off a rebound shot to tie the game at 1-1 in the 18th minute.

The Tribe (4-6, 1-1 CAA) regained the lead just two minutes later before Delaware junior Lauren Crudele (Voorhees, N.J./Bishop Eustace) pitted the contest at 2-2 with her second goal of the season as time expired in the first half.

In total, the Blue Hens (10-2, 2-0 CAA) outshot William & Mary, 26-10, and held the 10-4 advantage in penalty corners.

Junior Emmeline Oltmans (Baarn, The Netherlands/Het Baarnsch Lyceum) collected two saves while senior Maura Zarkoski (Eagleville, Pa./Villa Maria) posted a defensive save.

Morgan Connor accumulated 10 saves while Cammie Lloyd notched both goals for the Tribe.

Head Coach Rolf van de Kerkhof
“Wow what a game! We had a reality check in the first half as W&M really came after us and credit should be given to the Tribe for coming at us like there was no tomorrow. We adjusted nicely after half time but didn't find a way to highlight our domination into a score. Our OT performance has been the best in my six seasons as a Blue Hen and I am proud for the way our team controlled the entire OT and the way we finished it."

"We are looking forward to our fourth Big Ten opponent this season as we will welcome the University of Michigan to Fred P. Rullo Stadium this coming Saturday. This game will allow us to 'play & learn' as a team and be better next time we compete against another CAA opponent.
