Vermilion’s Katie Finley made four saves as goalkeeper and earned her second win of the season in the net as Baldwin-Wallace defeated Hiram, 3-2 in overtime on Wednesday.

Finley played all 93 minutes as goalie and is now 2-0 as a starter. Rocky River’s Lindsey Mikula scored her second match-winning goal this season. Mikula’s match-winning came at the 93:00 minute mark of the first overtime. The goal was her third of the season. Mikula also scored the match-winner on Sept. 5 in a 2-1 overtime win versus host Penn State Behrend (Pa.) in the consolation match of the Behend Tournament.

Finley, who also plays softball, transferred from Defiance College.

Another area athlete on the team is Amherst’s Angelica Meggitt, a junior forward. Meggitt started all 20 games as a sophomore and played in 13 games as a freshman. Her first career goal came on Oct. 17, 2009 against Muskingum.

At Amherst High School, Meggitt was the Comets’ Offensive Player of the Year in all four years there.
