Hompe lacrosse championships continue with England’s bronze medal goal

This was the last claw game in a lifetime like this.

Olivia Hombe of New Canaan has never been one to shy away from pressure, but an important fact she points out: “I remember the things I missed as well as the ones I made.”

Well, her last one is another one on the highlight reel.

Hombe scored in a free position with 54 seconds left in third overtime to give England an 8-7 victory over Australia in the Women’s World Championships bronze medal match at La Crosse in Towson, Maryland, on July 9.

A Princeton University graduate, Hompe scored four goals and assists in that competition, racked up 21 goals and eight assists in eight tournament appearances, and earned a spot on the All-World team.
