Navy nearly pulled off the upset against Virginia on Saturday, but Ashlyn McGovern had other plans.

Her fourth goal of the game tied the score with 34 seconds left in regulation, then her tally just 46 seconds into the overtime period led Virginia to a 14-13 win in Annapolis. For her effort, McGovern is the US Lacrosse Player of the Week.

The win also bumped Virginia up to No. 5 in the Nike/US Lacrosse Division I Women's Top 20.
