The Fort Lewis Skyhawks and the Metro State Roadrunners played some of the most entertaining games in the RMAC this fall. Each one was nervy and draws always looked likely.

Sunday was no exception as the two teams played 110 scoreless minutes before penalty kicks decided who would advance to the next round in the NCAA Division II women’s soccer championship.

The Skyhawks came away the winners 4-2 on PKs.

Metro State’s Sarah Tanous was the busier of the two ‘keepers, making 10 saves to Christine Schmelzle’s four as the two teams combined for 32 shots on the day. None of the shots, however, found the back of the net.

Final, with the Skyhawks leading 3-2 on penalty kicks after four rounds, Megan Striedel notched her penalty to send Fort Lewis past the Roadrunners.

Metro State ends its season at 12-5-4. The Skyhawks, 17-2-2, advance to play Winona State, which beat another RMAC school, Regis, on Sunday.

The Rangers had a 1-0 lead over Winona State during the first half that diminished during the second half when the Warriors tied the score. The game went into two overtime periods before Winona State claimed the victory during a shootout (4-2) to advance in the NCAA Tournament.

Meghan Stuart put the Rangers up when she was assisted by Marissa Davis, about midway through the first half.  This lead extended through the half and into the beginning of the second half.

Warrior Rachel Neumann tied the score at one a short five and a half minutes into the second half. However, neither team was able to reach the back of the others’ net again during the half sending the game into overtime.

The Rangers outshot Winona State in both overtime periods posting four shots to the Warriors’ two. Of the six shots between the two teams, none were game winning forcing a shootout.
