St Tim's Slips Past IND

M. Callahan
Visiting Institute of Notre Dame scored first, but St Tim's strong passing game proved to be the difference as the White and Blue came out on top 2-1.  Down 0-1 on a fast break goal by IND, Junior Captain Olivia Palermo drove to the top of the circle on a restart, eluded one defender and sent a hard strike toward goal.  The ball ricocheted off a defenders foot and skipped across the goal line for her team leading 5th goal of the season to tie the match.

The second half was a back and forth affair with St Tim's winning a penalty corner in the 7th minute.  Senior Cas Colmenar inserted the ball to Palermo who sent a pass low to classmate Symone Welch who redirected it into the goal for the eventual game-winner.  Sophomore Mia Hembling made 4 saves in the win and Senior Captain Gwen Van Doren had a defensive save in the first half.
