Colleges: Canisius women's soccer tops UB on Lee's goal in OT

Canisius managed only three shots on goal in 98 minutes of soccer Tuesday night but two went in for a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over the University at Buffalo (0-3-0)  at the Demske Sports Complex. It was the first win in three games for the Golden Griffins.

Shauna Lee, a freshman from Mississauga, Ont.,  scored the winner in overtime (97:39) for the Griffs, connecting on a give-and-go with Gretta Dry (Lockport), charging the net and putting her shot off the right post.

Canisius had managed only one shot on goal in its previous game at Youngstown State and didn't threaten the Bulls for a good portion of this game. Then ... talk about timely substitutions. Canisius had no shots on goal when coach Todd Clark inserted freshman Emily Porteus into the lineup in the 67th minute. Fifty-five seconds later Porteus' kick from 20 yards out caught the upper left post and went into tie the game at 1-all. Porteus also is a freshman from Mississauga, Ont.

UB had led since the fourth minute of the game when Carissima Cutrona (Williamsville South) scored with an assist from Rebecca Bramble. It was UB's first goal of the season.

UB had six shots on goal, five of which were saved by Canisius goalkeeper Alana Rossi. UB keeper Laura Dougall didn't have a save until the 96th minute on an attempt by Maddie Good of the Griffs.
