GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Southern Virginia University women's lacrosse team fell in overtime on Friday to Greensboro College by a score of 15-14.

The Knights (0-3) looked to start the game with a leg up. Just over thirty seconds into the game, Megan Barfuss scored off a pass from Lauren Thatcher to give the Knights the first point. The Knights went on a four-goal streak before the Pride (3-2) began its comeback.

There was little to separate the teams after the first half with both sides tied 7-7.

Greensboro started the second half with three unanswered goals before Megan Barfuss snapped the streak and brought momentum back to the Knights' offense. Hannah King led the Knights' offense in the second half, scoring five of the Knights' seven goals.

Tied 14-14, the teams went into overtime. The Knights defense came under attack about two minutes in and Greensboro found an opening to score and win the game 15-14.

Hannah King was the scoring leader, putting seven of her 10 shots in the back of the net, while Majkaleah Knowles finished with a hat trick. Barfuss scored two goals, and Miklain Hardy and Lauren Thatcher contributed an assist.

Madilyn Krauss was in goal for Southern Virginia, ending the game with seven saves.

The Knights will take on Ferrum College at home on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m.
