The Panthers out-shot Ithaca 23-6 in Sunday’s NCAA Regional final, but the nets stayed empty for regulation in extra time.
Middlebury capitalized on all three penalty kicks to take down the Bombers 3-0 in the shootout.
Junior goalie Eva Shaw was subbed in for just the PK’s, and she made all three stops to propel Midd into the NCAA Sectionals.
This is the Panthers’ eighth Regional win, and they will meet No. 12 Swarthmore next Saturday to kick off the Sectionals. The site for that matchup has not yet been announced.
