The No. 14 Lenoir-Rhyne Women's Soccer Team (2-2) fell for the second consecutive contest as the

The Sharks' Malin Broberg (Stockholm, SWEDEN) scored the match-winning goal with 3:10 left in the second overtime as Nova Southeastern won its second straight contest.

Dilja Olafsdottir (Reykjavik, ICELAND) tied the contest for the Sharks at the 66:27 mark of the second half and forced the contest into extra periods before Nova Southeastern ultimately prevailed.
Junior Tessa Lukens (Buford, Ga.) suffered the loss in goal for the Bears, who held a 19-8 advantage in shots taken but suffered consecutive setbacks for the first time in four years.
Nova Southeastern's goalkeeper, Sandra Rolon (San Juan, Puerto Rico), picked up the win after being credited with four saves on the afternoon.
