Grace slips in OT at NCCAA Regionals

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – An overtime goal handed Grace’s women’s soccer team an early exit in the NCCAA Regional Tournament.

The Lady Lancers lost 2-1 in overtime at Concordia in the semifinals of the regional tournament. Concordia advances to play at Indiana Wesleyan in the regional title game; the winner of that game receives an automatic bid to the NCCAA National Championships.

Friday’s game in the regional tournament was scoreless through the first 53 minutes of action. Neither team found the back of the net in the first half despite 18 combined shots.

Liz Van Wormer was active early for Grace, taking three shots in the opening 10 minutes.

Concordia opened the game’s scoring in the 54th minute and was poised to win in regulation.

But a late push from Grace tied the contest. Van Wormer passed a ball to Sacia Hanson, and Hanson converted with 5:40 remaining in the game to make the score 1-1.

The Cardinals (12-9) tried several shots down the stretch to no avail as the match went to overtime.

The Lady Lancers (7-9-4) started as the stronger team in the first overtime. Van Wormer and Autumn Raulerson each had a shot in the opening minutes, but Concordia won the match soon after.

The Cardinals earned a corner kick and connected on the cross in the 97th minute for the golden goal winner.

Van Wormer’s four shots led Grace, and Raulerson and Clair Snodgrass shot twice apiece.
