WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross women’s soccer team battled for a 1-0 double overtime victory over Army West Point on Saturday night in Worcester. Both teams had a strong first half, with each side generating scoring chances as shots were tied 3-3 through the first 45 minutes. Junior Megan Lawlor had a golden opportunity for the Crusaders with a header in the 33rd minute, but Sydney Cassalia came up with a huge save for the Black Knights.
