Behind two goals from Maggie Pierce, including one in overtime to win the game, the No. 13 Spartans knocked off No. 20 Greenfield by a score of 2-1 in the Division 4 Round of 32 Saturday afternoon at Manning Field. 

St. Mary's trailed 1-0 at the half, and then the third quarter went by with no change in score. Eventually Pierce was able to tie the game with 10:35 to play in the game before netting the game-winning goal in the overtime period.
