Senior Vanessa Patry headed a goal in off a corner kick from sophomore Therese Smith in the 2nd overtime Sunday to lead the University of Massachusetts over Holy Cross.
The Minutewomen struck first in the 2nd minute when Patry hit the crossbar and senior Vanessa Lima directed in the rebound. Holy Cross responded midway through the half when Junior forward Shelby Stand found the top right corner with a shot from just outside the box.
After a scoreless back and forth second half and first overtime, Patry connected on her third goal of the season two minutes into the second overtime.
The Minutewomen out shot the Crusaders, 15-13.
