TOWSON, Md. – Delaware looked to upset James Madison for the second time in less than two weeks, but the #20/19 Dukes pulled out the 11-10 CAA semifinals victory in overtime Friday evening at Towson's Johnny Unitas® Stadium.

With 2:07 left on the clock, junior Becky Gohsler (Mendham, N.J./West Morris Mendham) recorded her second goal of the game and 36th goal of the season to keep Delaware's hopes alive.  She added a team-best five draw controls to go along with three caused turnovers and three ground balls.

CAA Player of the Year Haley Warden scored the golden goal, her lone of the game, just a minute into OT.  The Dukes advance to Sunday's championship final for the fourth straight season.

Sophomore Caroline Farley (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) led the offensive attack with her first career hat trick, including two tallies of the team's final four goals of the game.

Senior Jamie Schwartz (Ellicott City, Md./Mt. Hebron) contributed three points on two assists and a goal while junior Megan Santoleri (Berwyn, Pa./Archbishop Carroll) registered two goals of her own.

Junior goalie Taylor Carpentier (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) collected another huge game with 12 saves, including eight in the first half.

POST-GAME QUOTES
Head Coach Kateri Linville
“Some pre-game jitters and a lack of focus resulted in a slow start in the first half, but we found a way to step up our game.  Taylor played absolutely out of her mind.  I couldn't be more proud of this team for battling back and putting us in the position to play to win in a situation against a quality opponent.  No doubt it's disappointing to come up short, but I think the sentiment in the locker room is that this team cares a lot about each other.  They have a lot of passion for the game and for wearing the University of Delaware uniform.  I couldn't be more proud of how they poured their hearts out in this game.”
