Women's Soccer Comes From Behind to Tie Springfield 1-1 After 2OT

NORTON, Mass. - The Wheaton College women's soccer team (8-4-4, 5-3-1 NEWMAC) used a second-half goal from junior Sam Ortiz to come from behind to tie the Springfield Pride 1-1 after double-overtime Tuesday evening in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) action at Mirrione Stadium. 

Springfield (11-4-2, 6-2-1 NEWMAC) got on the board in the final seconds of the first half with Nicole Morin-Trotta scoring after collecting a rebound off the crossbar. Wheaton, who were outshot 10-9 in the second half, put away the tying goal in the 88th minute with Ortiz netting her first goal of the season after firing off a shot from the top of the box. 

Both sides tried to put one away in overtime with Pride firing off shot after shot in the final overtime period, but the score would stand 1-1. 

Alexa Barbagallo ended the game with nine saves for Wheaton, while Emma O'Sullivan had four for the Pride.
