DOVER, Del. - It was only fitting that Wesley's two seniors hooked up for a goal, but Frostburg State outlasted the Wolverines 2-1 in double overtime in Capital Athletic Conference women's soccer.

Prior to the game, Wesley honored seniors Lacey Smith (Logan Township, N.J./Kingsway Regional) and Kim Fearnbach (Pennington, N.J./Hopewell Valley Central).  Then, with the game tied 0-0 in the first half, Fearnbach shielded a defender in front of the goal and sent the ball back to Smith who knocked it in from 12 yards out for a 1-0 lead at the half.

The goal was the seventh of Smith's career, moving her into a tie for 25th all-time at Wesley.  Fearnbach's assist, meanwhile, gave her 38 career points.

The Bobcats answered in the second half with a goal from Adria Graham.

The score remained 1-1 until deep into the second overtime, when Jessica Kraemer scored from 30 yards out into the top right corner for the game winner.

Wesley got a huge effort from goalkeeper Sydney Kahan (Cranston, R.I./Cranston), who made 14 saves in the contest.  Just over a minute into the contest, she stopped a one-on-one with Graham and stopped a breakaway with a sliding save in the 35th minute.  The Bobcats also had a breakaway attempt in the first overtime, but Kahan got just enough of the ball to redirect it wide of the net.

Michelle Buckmaster stopped one shot for Frostburg State. 

The Bobcats held a 29-3 advantage in shots in the game.

The Wolverines host Lincoln (Pa.) on Monday, October 24 at 7:00 PM.
