Boyar's third goal wins for Daemen in OT

Junior forward Jamie Boyar (Williamsville South) scored a career-high three goals including the game winner in the 92nd minute to give Daemen a come-from-behind victory over Molloy, 3-2, in overtime. It was the East Coast Conference opener for Daemen (3-3 overall).

Molloy led 2-0 after 11 minutes. Boyar scored on a breakaway from Sarah Britton in the 28th minute and got the equalizer at 59:28 when she deflected a crossing feed from Sam Hanes (North Tonawanda).

Boyar was wide on a penalty kick in the 84th minute after she was hauled down in the box but in the extra time she scored with a low shot from 16 yards out to win it.

Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference women’s soccer play opened Saturday with different results for Niagara and Canisius.

The Purple Eagles (5-3, 1-0 MAAC) posted their third straight shutout in a 3-0 win over Iona in New Rochelle.

After a scoreless first half dominated by Niagara, Annie Ibey scored her team-high fifth goal of the season in the 60th minute. Then Ibey assisted on a goal by Lauren Testa in the 67th minute. Ida Micelli headed home a free kick to make it 3-0.

"We knew this was going to be a tricky game since Iona plays a very defensive style," Niagara coach Peter Velti said. Iona had only two shots on goal.

Canisius has dominated its rivalry with Saint Peters with 13 wins in a tie in their last 16 meetings, but the Peahens (1-6) scored a 1-0 upset in Jersey City, N.J. on a free kick goal by freshman Brooke Boutchie from the center of the field in the 36th minute that tipped off Canisius keeper Alana Rossi’s fingers.

"It’s a very disappointing loss," Canisius coach Todd Clark said. "We didn’t have focus in the warm-up and it lead directly into the game. The focus and effort just wasn’t there for us today."
