WORCESTER, Mass., October 26, 2005 – Springfield College sophomore forward Brittany Veazie (Dexter, Maine) scored her ninth goal of the season in the second minute of overtime (71:11) as the No. 10 Pride defeated the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), 1-0, this afternoon (Oct. 26) in Worcester, Mass.
Off an assist from junior midfielder Janna Prachniak (Lincoln, R.I.), Veazie was able to find the back of the net from five yards out, as SC improves to an impressive 7-0 this season in overtime games.
