SEWANEE, Tenn. - The Bridgewater College field hockey team had a late second half lead but couldn't hold on, in a 2-1 loss at Sewanee on Sunday.
Freshman Dani Eddo gave the Eagles the lead in just the second minute of action.
The teams had to deal with a lightning delay of several hours, and the hosts would score the winner soon after play resumed.
Sewanee was down a player with 11 minutes left after picking up a green card, but earned a penalty corner.
Alex Hornsby passed it over to Ceara Caffrey, who slotted it home to tie the game with 10:30 remaining.
Caffrey would go on to win the game in overtime, scoring unassisted in the ninth minute of OT.
Overall, Bridgewater held a 28-9 advantage in shots, and 13-2 in penalty corners.
Rachel Blum made seven saves after halftime to lead Sewanee to victory, as the Eagles couldn't convert on four penalty corners in the final seven minutes. On their last chance of regulation, a shot from Jacqueline DiFulvio went just wide.
BC earned another penalty corner early in overtime, but Blum denied Laura Gretz twice in a row.
Bridgewater falls to 3-4 and will travel to Ferrum on Saturday. Sewanee is now 6-1 on the year, as the Eagles faced two teams in Tennessee who have just one loss combined in 2018.
