WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- The University of Delaware women soccer team fell 2-1 in double overtime Sunday afternoon at the College of William & Mary. The loss drops the Blue Hens into a three-way tie for fifth place in the updated Colonial Athletic Association standings. 

Delaware (5-8-2, 2-4 CAA) fell behind early Sunday afternoon as Tribe (5-8-2, 1-3-2 CAA) forward Sarah Segan scored 111 seconds into the game when she fired a shot into the back of the net.

The Hens and Tribe played into the 70th minute without another score. Redshirt senior Andrea Gunderson tied the match scoring her second goal of the season in the 72nd minute. Gunderson shot a corner-kick past W&M goalie Grace Smith.

Delaware and the Tribe remained tied until the opening minutes of the second overtime period when Segan scored her second goal of the match 79 seconds into overtime period number two.

The Blue Hens close out the road portion of the CAA schedule Thursday night at College of Charleston. Kickoff from South Carolina is scheduled for 7 p.m. 

Head Coach Mike Barroqueiro:

“First off, huge credit to William & Mary. They were a team on a winless streak and they played with urgency and passion. As for us, this is another harsh lesson of what it means to not key in on the details of the game. We have a bit of fight to us but we make far too many mistakes if we want to be a team that can qualify for a conference tournament. That being said, we need to be mature, keep our heads up and keep competing. We still have plenty of soccer to play.”


• Delaware has lost back-to-back CAA matches, and have scored just two goals in eight losses this season. 

• The Blue Hens fall to 3-2-2 in overtime contests this season, and to 2-5-2 on the road. 

• The Hens close Sunday in a three-way tie for fifth place in the CAA standings with just three matches remaining. UD is tied with James Madison and Elon, and are one-point behind College of Charleston. Delaware heads to Charleston Thursday before returning home to face JMU and Elon. Six schools make the single-elimination CAA Tournament which begins on Sunday, October 29th at to be determined regional sites.  

• Gunderson's goal was her third career goal and second of the season. 

Cali Loeffler played the first 98-minutes in goal, replacing starting goalie Kailyn Rekos. Rekos came in in the final minute of the first overtime and played the remainder of the match.
