For the second time this week, Siena Women’s Soccer rallied from a late deficit to seize victory. Carrie Krohn knotted the tying goal in the 79th minute and Ashleigh Sarafin scored the golden goal just over two minutes into the first overtime period as the Saints stormed back to post their seventh straight victory over Iona with a 2-1 final in New Rochelle.
Taylor Dorado made three saves for cardiac Siena (4-6-3, 2-1-1) which had also scored twice in the final 20 minutes Wednesday to rally past Canisius by the same 2-1 score.
Jayanna Monds, who scored the winning goal against the Golden Griffins, set up the decisive tally Saturday. She centered a cross from the right to a cutting Sarafin who initially hit the post before slamming home the rebound for the Saints which improved to an impressive 9-2-6 over their past 17 overtime matches.
Amber Crispin scored just 96 seconds into the contest for Iona (3-8-2, 0-2-1) as Siena once again had to chase an early deficit.
But the Saints out-shot the Gaels 11-2 after halftime to remain unbeaten in seven of their last eight matches. Krohn netted the equalizer with just over 11 minutes remaining in regulation, finishing a feed from Amber Alfonzo at the top of the 18. Siena has now rallied late in the second half to either win or tie each of their past four matches in which they’ve achieved a positive result.
The Saints now prepare to host Monmouth in a rematch of last season’s MAAC Championship Match on Wednesday at 3 p.m. at Siena Field.
