In a span of 3 1/2 minutes, the McGann-Mercy girls soccer team dug out of a two-goal hole in a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over Amityville Monday afternoon.

Senior Karlin McIntyre scored the game-winner to cap a stunning run of three consecutive goals. Mercy improved to 3-9-1 after the non-league victory.

Amityville dominated the first half and much of the second half until the Monarchs flipped a switch midway through the half.

Shannon Willmott found herself in the right place at the right time when a pass came her way in front of the goal with 20:22 left in the second half. She chipped the ball inside the right post to bring the Monarchs back within a goal.

Just over a minute later the Monarchs capitalized on an Amityville miscue as the Warriors knocked in an own goal. Courtney Walsh got credited for the Mercy goal.

Then with 16:52 left McIntyre controlled a long pass on the right side from Hannah Steinhauer and drilled the ball inside the left post to cap the comeback.

It was the second time Mercy played Amityville in a non-league game this season. The Warriors won the first meeting 1-0.

Mercy closes out the regular season this week with games at Stony Brook Tuesday and at home Thursday against Port Jefferson.
