Ft. Lewis star John Cunliffe scored two goals in the last eight minutes to lift the defending champion Skyhawks to a 4-2 win over Lincoln Memorial on Thursday and move them into Saturday's NCAA Division II men's final against Dowling in Pensacola, Fla.
Cunliffe buried a penalty kick to give Fort Lewis the lead, then weaved his way across the edge of the penalty area to seal the win, netting his 30th of the season.

A pair of second-half goals by Lincoln Memorial striker Leandro Pereira had lifted the Railsplitters to lead, 2-1, with 30 minutes left. Ben Gantenbein swerved in an improbable free kick from an acute angle to tie the game 2-2 in the 72nd minute.

Dowling knocked off the hometown team, West Florida, 5-4, on penalty kicks after they played to a 3-3 tie. The Golden Lions trailed, 3-1, in the second half before evening the score on goals by leading scorers Guy-Roland Kpene and Morton Jensen (their 25th and 23rd of the season, respectively) four minutes apart.

WOMEN'S FINAL FOUR: Metro State knocked off previously unbeaten and untied West Chester, 2-1, on Kira Sharp's goal in the second minute of the second overtime and advanced to Saturday's D2 women's championship in Pensacola against Grand Valley State, a 2-0 winner over Tampa.

West Chester broke a scoreless tie in the 60th minute on a goal by Danielle Gerz. Katie Kilbey tied the game at one apiece with less than 15 minutes remaining in the second half.

Grand Valley State sophomore Katy Tafler continued her phenomenal season with her 33rd goal in 21 games. put Irie Dennis the game away in the 65th minute on a breakaway.
