Women's Soccer Beats Georgetown in Overtime in NCAA Second Round

WASHINGTON, D.C. – No. 12-ranked Santa Clara women's soccer is on to the third round of the NCAA Tournament for the third year in a row and fifth time in the last six seasons after topping third-seeded Georgetown 2-1 in overtime on Friday.

The match-winner was a beautiful connection between Lucy Mitchell, Kelsey Turnbow, and Izzy D'Aquila. Mitchell found Turnbow near the top of the box and after a turn, she popped a pass through the defense and D'Aquila one-timed it under the diving keeper and inside the far post.

In all, the Broncos (13-5-2) created more chances, outshooting the Hoyas (14-2-6) 13-4 while putting four shots on target and allowing just one.

Turnbow got the scoring going in the 16th with a beautiful goal of her own. Kaile Halvorsen found D'Aquila who got it to Turnbow just outside the 18. After a move around a defender, she hit a perfect shot into the upper-right corner.

Georgetown had a nice goal of their own off a corner in the 23rd. Maya Fernandez-Powell sent the set piece in and found the head of Sydney Cummings who finished. It was the Hoys 10th goal off a corner on the year.
