MANCHESTER, N.H. (September 25, 2019) – Southern New Hampshire University, ranked No. 8 in this week's Penn Monto/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division II poll, slipped past No. 7 Stonehill College, 2-1 in overtime in Northeast-10 Conference field hockey action at Larkin Field tonight.
Freshman Lisa Hagel scored just 41-seconds into overtime to lift Southern New Hampshire its sixth straight win and snap Stonehill's three-game winning streak, which included back-to-back overtime triumphs last week. Postgrad Melanie Rennie preserved the win for the Penmen with six saves, while senior Laura van der Doorn also scored a goal.
Sophomore Olivia Cameron scored her third goal of the season for Stonehill, while junior Katie Lammando registered a save. The Skyhawks finished with a 12-6 advantage in shots and 12-5 margin for penalty corners in the loss.
van der Doorn broke the stalemate with 4:29 remaining in regulation when she converted a penalty stroke for her seventh goal of the season. The goal broke Stonehill's shutout streak at 219:03 dating back to the third quarter of its 5-1 win over Southern Connecticut State University on September 14.
Cameron forced overtime for the third-straight game for Stonehill, and fourth this season overall, with her third goal of the season off a pass from freshman Mackenzie Quigley with 3:27 remaining. Cameron scored for the second-straight game for the Skyhawks, while Quigley now leads the team with three assists.

Hagel followed with the winner just 41-seconds into overtime with her eighth goal of the year into the left side of the cage.
