The Miami Hurricanes won nine soccer games last fall. The dramatic finish of win #9 was the highlight of the season.
Clemson held a 1-0 lead on Senior Night at Cobb Stadium in Coral Gables with about four minutes left to play[show_disconnected][show_to accesslevel=’Subscriber’].
Then the heroics began for the Hurricanes.
Senior Blake Stockton (Lindwood, NJ) playing her final collegiate game, took the ball on a deep run into the Tigers’ box. She fell down, but managed to touch the ball with her left foot past Clemson GK Kailen Sheridan.
With the game winding down to overtime, Mimi pressed on and on a broken play the ball found its way to the left foot of freshman Cortney O’Connell (Chantilly, Va.).
Twenty yards out from the goal, O’Connell one-timed a left-footed curler into the upper right corner beating Sheridan with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation.
“I saw the ball coming to her, and in my head, I kept saying to myself, ‘Hit it one time, hit it one time, hit it one time,'” head coach Mary-Frances Monroe said.”
With that strike, Miami (9-8-1) had its 2-1 win and also had a winning season.
