ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Freshman Jess Angerman (Shoreham, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) scored with 1:03 remaining in the sudden-victory overtime period to boost the University of Michigan women's lacrosse team to its second victory of the season, 13-12, in double overtime against California on Saturday (April 12) at Michigan Stadium. The Wolverines wore special white and pink uniforms for today's game, as they hosted the program's first-ever Pink Game.
Freshman Tess Korten (Glen Head, N.Y./North Shore) had the assist on the game-winner, as she hit Angerman cutting down the middle of the eight meter, and Angerman whipped it into the lower right-hand corner of the net to give the program its second win.
Off a free-position opportunity with U-M down 10-9 with 11:23 remaining in regulation, Angerman dished it to Korten standing right of the net, where she slid it near post past the goalie to tie it up at 10 with 3:11 on the clock.
Then, with 1:43 left to play, Korten took her defender one on one and shot hard and high to give Michigan its first lead since the 25:48 mark of the second half. However, Cal knotted the score once again with just 38 seconds left to send the game into its first overtime period with a score of 11-11. The Bears had an opportunity to win in regulation, but the Wolverine defense came up with the stop.
In overtime, the Golden Bears took an early 12-11 advantage over the Wolverines, scoring within the first 34 seconds of play. With 1:46 remaining in the period, the Korten-Angerman duo stepped up again. This time, it was Korten assisting Angerman, who got off a quick shot to make it 12-12. Strong Michigan defense for the remainder of the first overtime sent the game into the sudden-victory period.
The Wolverines dominated the second overtime, as Michigan secured both draw controls and outshot the Bears, 5-0, leading up to the Angerman game-winning finish.
Korten and Angerman each had four goals on the day, while freshman Anna Schueler (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy) contributed a hat trick, and freshmen Madeline Dion (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) and Kelly Schlansker (Glenville, N.Y./Niskayuna) each chipped in one goal apiece. Schlansker's goal is the first of her career.
Freshman Allison Silber (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) came up with eight saves to help secure the U-M victory.
Next up, the Wolverines will take on Detroit on Wednesday (April 16) in their final regular-season road game. The game is set for a 4 p.m. start at Titan Field.
