BUFFALO — Horseheads graduates Abbey Kamas and McKenna Woodworth combined for six goals and two assists as Daemen women’s lacrosse beat Gannon 14-13 in a matchup where three former Blue Raiders started in the game.
Kamas scored her first two goals of the season, and had an assist, to help Daemen pick up the win.
Woodworth had four goals and an assist for Gannon in the game, while fellow Horseheads graduate Lauren Squires started on defense and had three ground balls in the game.
The game was decided with two seconds left when Camryn Day of Daemen scored on a free position goal in the non-conference game at Medaille Sports Complex.
Kamas gave Daemen a 3-1 lead with just under four minutes left in the first quarter, but Gannon scored the next five goals to take a 6-3 advantage. Bouley and Bacher scored back-to-back goals midway through the second quarter to make it a 6-5 game, but junior Skyler Parsons scored with just 26 seconds left before halftime and the visitors took a 7-5 lead into the break.
Woodworth gave Gannon an 8-5 lead early in the third quarter, but a man-down goal by Kamas sparked the Wildcats on a 4-0 run that gave the hosts a 9-8 lead. Neither team led by more than a goal after that until the Wildcats opened up a 13-11 lead after Decatur and Bacher scored back-to-back goals late in the fourth quarter. Hepditch converted a free position shot with 1:08 left to make it a one-goal game, and Hunter tied the game with 39 seconds left. Bouley won the ensuing draw control, which gave the Wildcats possession for the final 35 seconds.
