STONINGTON — Hannah Nulick scored with 36 seconds remaining in overtime, lifting Stonington High to a 2-1 win over Lauralton Hall in the Class S field hockey tournament Thursday at Palmer Field.

Dillon Griscom recovered a ball outside the circle and sent a pass to Nulick near the right post. She pushed the ball into the cage for the winning goal, her 19th of the season.

In overtime, teams play 7 vs. 7. The two teams were in the first 10-minute sudden-death overtime. A second 10-minute overtime would have been played if no one had scored in the first one.

Nulick also scored Stonington's other goal on a penalty corner after time had expired at the end of the first quarter. Teams are allowed to play out a penalty corner even if time has expired.

No. 10 Lauralton Hall (11-6) responded in the second quarter to tie the game, 1-1.

No. 2 Stonington (17-3) advanced to the semifinals where it will face No. 3 Thomaston, which topped No. 6 Old Saybrook, 1-0, on Thursday.

The semifinal game will be played on Tuesday or Wednesday at a site and time to be determined.
