Hompe’s lacrosse heroics continue with bronze medal winning goal for England

It was the latest 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 an important fact she pointed out: “I remember the ones that I’ve missed as well as the ones that I’ve made.”

Well, her latest moment is another one for the highlight reel.

Hompe scored on a free position with 54 seconds remaining in a third overtime to give England an 8-7 win over Australia in the Bronze Medal game of the Women’s Lacrosse World Championships in Towson, Md, on July 9.

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