Hompe’s lacrosse heroism continues with bronze medal-winning goal for England

It was the last clutch play in a lifetime of such moments.

New Canaan’s Olivia Hompe has never been one to shy away from pressure, but there’s one important fact she pointed out: “I remember the ones I missed as well as the ones I made. .”

Well, his last moment is another one for the highlight reel.

Hompe scored from an open position with 54 seconds left in third overtime to give England an 8-7 victory over Australia in the Women’s Lacrosse World Championships bronze medal match at Towson, Maryland, July 9.

A Princeton graduate, Hompe scored four goals and one assist in that contest and, with 21 goals and eight assists in eight tournament games, earned a spot on the All-World team.
