After 110 minutes of scoreless soccer and an epic 13-round shootout, which included a pair of saves by goalkeeper Kaele Leonard, sophomore Jennifer Grant knocked in the match-clinching penalty kick to allow the Eagles (14-1-7) to advance to the NCAA Semifinals for the first time in school history, with a 0-0 tie against Carnegie Mellon University (14-1-5) in Pittsburgh, PA.

With the shootout win, the 16th-ranked Eagles will advance to the 'Final Four' of the NCAA Division III Women's Soccer Championships, where they will meet 11th-ranked Wheaton College (Ill.) on November 30th at 6:00 PM EST. The semifinal match, along with the championship game, will be played at the Blossom Soccer Complex in San Antonio, Texas.
