McCabe, Rivera lead Lions to 3-3 draw at Keystone
 

LA PLUME, Pa. – Ashley Rivera scored the opening goal and Maggie McCabe added the second and third goals for the Bryn Athyn College women's soccer team as the Lions earned a road point in the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) standings with a 3-3 draw against Keystone Wednesday afternoon.

Rivera broke the scoreless deadlock at the 11:29 mark with a breakaway goal. She started the sequence by stealing the ball from a Keystone midfielder and passing the ball to teammate Tori Titano. Titano, just shy of the midway line on the Bryn Athyn side of the field, played the ball immediate back to a sprinting Rivera on the left wing. Rivera went in all alone on keeper Rebekah Shepherd and beat her with a shot to the lower right corner.

Keystone (1-8-1, 0-2-1 CSAC) leveled the score at one at 18:13 when Jordyn Olsen lofted a high-arcing shot from 29 yards away and over the head of Lion keeper Allie Warren.

McCabe put the Lions back in front with another breakaway goal just 1:17 after the Giants tied the score. Rivera found McCabe with a pass at midfield. Then, McCabe spun away from her defender, ran past two more, and shot the ball by a charging Shepherd.

Bryn Athyn (3-4-1, 2-1-1 CSAC) held the lead until the 61:48 mark when Megan Weber made the score 2-1. Kristen Hlavaty played a cross into the box from the left side of the penalty area and Weber was able to track it down and put the ball into the net.

The Lions took their third lead of the night on McCabe's second goal of the night—team-leading fourth goal of the season—with just under 20 minutes remaining on a set piece. Shauna Breen took the free kick and put the ball into the penalty area. McCabe knocked the ball down and then got her right foot to it to poke the ball home.

Keystone fought back to level the contest once again, this time on an Alex Myers turnaround goal from the right post with 9:11 left in regulation.

In the overtime sessions, Bryn Athyn peppered the Keystone net with shots, but Shepherd stopped all five shots on goal to preserve the draw.

Shepherd finished the match with 12 saves, while Warren recorded five stops.
