UCSB WLAX File PhotoVirginia Beach, VA - Santa Clara prevailed 12-11 over UCSB in double overtime in a placement game at the WCLA National Championship Tournament at the Princess Anne Athletic Complex. The Gauchos and the Broncos traded leads all game in mostly even play that kept spectators on the edge of their seats every minute of both halves and two overtimes. The score was 5-5 at halftime. Santa Clara took a slight lead early in the second half and UCSB fought back to tie it and eventually lead 9-8. The Broncos took an 11-10 lead with less than four minutes remaining only to see senior Blair Evans (Salinas, CA) score unassisted to tie it up with just over a minute left in regulation. 

Through a full six minute overtime neither team could score thanks to four saves by UCSB senior goalie Megan Hughes (Santa Ana, CA) and one save by Santa Clara freshman goalie Margaret Von Massenhausen (Willow Glen, CA). Santa Clara outshot UCSB 7-3 through both overtimes but Hughes' timely saves got UCSB to the second overtime. The Broncos won the draw to start the second overtime period and scored on a free position shot after 8 minutes and 37 seconds of the extra time. 

Evans finished with 4 goals and 1 assist followed closely by sophomore Amanda Shoemaker (Poway, CA) with four goals and junior Lindsay Alex (Santa Ana, CA) with 1 goal and 3 assists. The second assist in the game for Alex was her 50th of the season and she broke fifty on her next assist, which was a nice pass to Shoemaker that put UCSB up 10-9 in the second half. It is Alex's third consecutive season with 50 or more assists and she is the UCSB all-time assist leader with 187 in three seasons. Hughes had 17 saves for 58.6%. Junior Dana Kilsby (Lake Osego, OR) and sophomore Brooke Betts (Livermore, CA) each had 3 goals and 1 assist for the Broncos. Kilsby's third goal was the game winner.
