For much of the second half Friday, Carly Brosious looked for an opening to give Bonner & Prendergast the edge in its Catholic League field hockey showdown with Archbishop Carroll.
Her opportunity came with time winding down.
Brosious scored off a corner with 2:03 left in the game to lift the Pandas to a 3-2 victory over the Patriots at the Proving Grounds in Conshohocken.
It was the second goal of the game for Brosious but the only one in the second half after the Pandas (3-3, 3-0 Catholic League) and Patriots battled to a 2-2 deadlock in the first. Kaitlyn Martin had two assists, including one on a goal by her sister Allison.
Neve Spellman came up with a key defensive save for MBAP. Meg Sullivan also came up big on defense in front of goalie Chelsea Rafferty (five saves).
Jade Orsatti and Alex Almonte scored for Carroll, while goalie Mary Kate Kearney had six saves.
