BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin's Rebecca Silva scored with 13:36 left in regulation to salvage a 1-1 tie with visiting Babson College on Sunday afternoon. The Polar Bears stand at 1-0-1 this season while the Beavers are 2-1-1.
After a scoreless opening period, Babson's Shir Castel finished off a scramble in front of the goal to give the visitors a 1-0 lead at 57:47. The Beavers appeared poised to pick up just their second win in 26 tries against the Polar Bears, thanks in great part to goaltender Sarah Macary, who made a diving save on a Silva shot with 15 minutes to play.
Just moments later, however, Christina Aceto won a battle in the middle of the box and the ball game to the foot of Silva, who buried a left-footed rocket into the net to deadlock the game at 77:24.
Neither team could find the game-winner in the two extra sessions, with Bowdoin holding a 6-3 edge in shots in overtime. Macary finished with nine saves, including two in overtime. Bowdoin first-year Rachel Schwemberger made her first career start in net and made five saves, including three in overtime.
