GROVE CITY, Pa.--  Grove City's Elena Guerra broke a scoreless tie 5:25 into the first overtime to propel the Wolverines past Denison, 1-0 on Tuesday afternoon.

Grove City's goal developed after Krista Heckman's shot was saved by Denison goalkeeper Jenny Herold.  The ball bounced in Guerra's direction and the senior forward knocked it in for the game-winner.

The Wolverines had been knocking on the door in the waning minutes of the second half and into overtime.  Over the final 25 minutes of play, Herold posted six of her nine saves.

For the match, Grove City held a 16-11 lead in shots.  Madison Smith, Claire Kolff and Meg Wozniak led Denison with two shots apiece.  In the second half, Wozniak, Allie Holmes and Kailey Knopf combined to put four shots-on-goal.  Grove City's Trishae Winters picked up the shutout with a six-save effort.

This marked the first-ever meeting between Denison and Grove City in women's soccer.  The Wolverines, who are ranked fifth in the most recent United Soccer Coaches Great Lakes Regional rankings, improve to 10-4.  The Big Red falls to 5-5-4 on the season. 

Denison will look to bounce back on Saturday, Oct. 21 when they host the College of Wooster at 12 p.m. at Barclay-Thomsen Field.
