Doane and Dana Finish with Tie
Doane and Dana met up for the first time since the NAIA Region III First Round match from a year ago and the two teams put on another exciting game. Last year, Dana defeated Doane 1-0 in the tournament. This year, the two teams could not decide a victor as they finished in a 1-1 tie.
Doane (6-4-1, 2-2-1 GPAC) struck first when Samantha Exstrom scored her GPAC-leading 11th goal of the season. The goal came 5:12 into the game.
However, only 27 seconds later, Dana's Michelle Mullen scored the tying goal. It was Mullen's 10th goal of the season, second in the GPAC.
The rest of the way, it was up to the goalkeepers Alicia Exstrom (Doane) and Chelsea Griffin (Dana). Exstrom made some big saves late for the Tigers, including one with two seconds left in the second overtime off a corner kick. She finished with 11 saves while Griffin finished with nine.
The Tigers will travel to Sioux City, Iowa, to take on Morningside College on October 4 at 1:00 PM.
