LANCASTER, Pa. – Gettysburg's Hannah Church scored five goals and added an assist as the seventh-ranked Bullets (14-3) defeated Ursinus (8-9) 14-7 in the Centennial Conference semifinals held at Tylus Field on the campus of Franklin & Marshall.
The Bullets advance to play top-seed F&M on Sunday afternoon.
Ursinus got three goals from sophomore midfielder Elizabeth Chatburn (Dresher, Pa./Upper Dublin), while Lindsey Urban added in a pair of goals as the Bears stayed with the Bullets in the first half, only trailing by three entering intermission.
After Church scored the first goal, Ursinus tied the score at 1-all 2:01 into the game on a goal by senior attack Lindsey Urban (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) off an assist from senior midfielder Allison Furman (Glibertsville, Pa./Boyertown). Furman had four assists in the game.
Gettysburg scored the next three goals to go up 4-1, before Chatburn scored with 13:48 left to cut the deficit to 4-2. That would be the closest Ursinus would get the rest of the way, as Gettysburg went on a 3-0 run to go up 7-2 and never looked back.
