Husky women slay Dragons on Rosenblatt penalty kick
PHILADELPHIA -- Sophomore Hannah Rosenblatt’s 94th-minute penalty kick gave the Northeastern Huskies women’s team a 1-0 win in extra time over Drexel in a CAA match at Vidas Field Sunday.
Drexel (5-5-1 overall, 1-1-0 CAA) threatened in the first half as Vanessa Kara hit the post and Shaelyn McCarty the crossbar in quick succession.
Early in the second half, Northeastern (6-5-1, 1-1-0) sophomore Valentina Soares Gache hit the crossbar on a long-range shot from the right wing early.
Rosenblatt scored her second overtime winner of the season, drilling a low, hard shot inside the right post, for her team-leading fourth goal and third game-winner of the season.
