S. Jersey Girls: Sat. S.J. girls: Tevis comes through for Clearview

Posted: April 15, 2013

Clearview's Holly Tevis delivered when her team needed her the most Saturday in a 12-11 overtime win against visiting Rumson in nonleague lacrosse.

With 47 seconds left before the teams would begin a sudden-death overtime, Tevis drove hard to the goal and drew a foul, resulting in an 8-meter opportunity, which she blasted to the back of the net.

"She probably has one of the hardest and most accurate shots I've seen," Clearview coach Megan Conklin said.

"If I wanted anyone to have the ball in that situation, it was Holly."

After the first overtime, Clearview trailed, 11-9. The teams switched ends, and Clearview's Sara Kramer, a University of Michigan recruit, took over the game, scoring twice in a minute to tie it.

"She's a captain, and she was the perfect person to have the ball in that situation," Conklin said of Kramer, who finished with three goals. "She was very confident and very composed."
