The Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — St. Mary-of-the-Woods dominated possession but lost on the scoreboard Saturday afternoon, falling 3-1 to Marygrove in a battle of top-10 USCAA teams in the Pomeroys’ homecoming match.

Amanda Loebker scored in the final second of the first half, a shot that caromed in off the crossbar from 25 yards out, to give the home team a 1-1 tie at intermission. Loebker’s 12 goals leads the USCAA.

Despite some point-blank opportunies in the second half, however, The Woods was unable to score again and gave up two goals in the last six minutes.

The Pomeroys, now 3-2, play next Saturday at Hanover.
