NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University athletics resumes its summer series with a daily flashback to the top five moments of 2016-17 for each of its 19 varsity sports. Beginning with Memorial Day (Monday, May 29, 2017) and finishing with the final day of August, 95 moments (19 x 5) will be shared to relive the most exciting happenings of the most recent Seahawk season.

Amber Cody (Pawling, N.Y.) scored her league-leading 14th goal to give Salve Regina University field hockey a 4-3 overtime victory Friday, October 7, against Roger Williams University in Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) action.

The Hawks had a great opportunity to take the lead again in the 64h minute with the second penalty stroke of the day for RWU. Yaeger stepped up again for the Hawks and fired the shot, but Salve keeper Jessie Severino (Branford, Conn.) denied her with a jumping stick save to her right. That save would help push the game into overtime.

In the extra frame, Amber Cody (Pawling, N.Y.) logged the game winning with just under two minutes left in the first overtime. Thompson took the ball down the field by herself and found Cody in front of the goal for the tap-in and the win.

Severino tallied eight saves for Salve in the win, while Hawk keeper Mya Lunn (Marion, Mass.) also made eight saves.
