    Lacrosse Magazine article by Matt Forman -

    Katrina Dowd earned two nicknames during her time at Northwestern - Trix, for her incredible stick skills, and Miss May, for her uncanny ability to play her best in the NCAA tournament. One highlight reel, game-tying goal embodies both of them.

    When the Wildcats trailed Penn 12-11 in the first three minute overtime period of the 2009 semifinal, it looked like their run of four straight national titles would come to an end. But Dowd wouldn't let that happen. With seconds remaining, she picked up a loose ball and fired a no-look, falling down shot to the upper right corner.

    "There were about 10 seconds to play, and on the draw control I was actually behind the line. Hannah (Nielsen) got it clean. I made a low cut, and I grabbed the loose ball, but I didn't know how much time I had left - it was probably around five seconds," said Dowd, now a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Denver and a brand manager at Harrow Sports.

    "I took a far outside shot. It went right into the goalie's (Emily Szelest) stick, but the rebound popped out when Alex Frank got a piece of it. I made a dive at the ball, it fell into my stick and I put it on cage. Then I saw it in the back of the net, and I just knew that I got it off in time. After that, everyone kind of took a big deep breath. It was just kind of unbelievable."

    Two minutes later, in sudden death, Frank buried the decisive goal.
