Buckley Strikes for OT Win


Chicopee, Mass.-- Rachel Buckley netted the lone goal of the afternoon to lift the visiting Lynx squad over Elms college 1-0 Saturday afternoon.  With the win, Lesley improves to 4-3 and 2-0 in NECC play, while the Blazers are 5-3-1 and 1-1 in conference.


  • Elms was out-shot 18-3 in the contest but kept the Lynx off the scoreboard through 90 minutes to force overtime. Lesley, however got the game-winner in the 99th minute when Rachel Buckley slotted a ball to the far post past Blazer goalkeeper Rebecca Molin for the victory.  The Lynx also held the advantage in corner kicks, 4-2.
  • Samantha Bessey and Jordan Mitchell each had three shots in the game for Lesley while Xaelel Allen-Caballero, Kyra Harbus, Claire Hounslow, and Buckley each added two.
  • The Lynx defense only allowed the Blazers to get off two shots in the second half, and none in overtime to help preserve the win.


The Lynx return to action on Sept. 25 when they host Emmerson College.
