(PAINESVILLE, Ohio) – Anna Spin broke her own G-MAC record for points in a game and tied the conference mark for goals in a game in Lake Erie's 18-17 overtime victory over Northern Michigan. The senior lit up the Wildcats (1-3) for nine goals and four points, and all were needed to help give the Storm (2-1) their second-straight one-goal win.
It took just as much courage and charisma as the comeback against Charleston as well. This time the Storm found themselves down two with a minute to go, but free-position goals by Ireland Kennedy and Spin 45 seconds apart sent it to overtime.
In the extra period, it was the familiar combo of Riley Heffron and Meagan Maxwell who paired up to give the Green and White the triumph. The same duo combined to score the game-winner against Charleston as well. It was Heffron's second of the game.
Maxwell did her fair share of scoring as well as she combined for six points on two goals and four assists for six points. Two of her assists were Spin scores.
Spin also got the job done elsewhere on the field as well. She was excellent at the start with seven draw controls. Defensively she caused three turnovers and helped complete the process with three more as she totaled three ground balls.
The Storm led by as many as four in the middle of the game just before the half after Spin scored on another FPS with 5:36 to go in the half. Northern Michigan scored to make it 10-7 just before the break, but the Wildcats really made their move at the start of the second as they outscored Lake Erie 6-1 in the first 10 minutes after the break.
Emily Renfrew paced the Wildcats with four goals and three assists. Jessica Daniels added five goals.
Lake Erie now hits the road for its next three contests. The first of those will be against UIndy this Saturday. Opening draw with the Greyhounds is set for 11 a.m.
