4. NAIA WOMEN: Lindsey Wilson prevails in fourth OT

MOST COMMENTED


Danish freshman Kristine Pedersen's goal in the 123rd minute gave Lindsey Wilson a 2-1 win over top seed Azusa Pacific Tuesday in the NAIA women's national championship game.

Azusa Pacific scored first when Sarah Yoro struck from the left flank in the 22nd minute. Lindsey Wilson tied the game 16 minutes later on a goal by Jamaica international Omolyn Davis. The gane remained tied into the fourth overtime when Pederson took a pass from Jamaican Sashsheena Stewart and shot a laser from about 15 yards out to decide the third longest women's championship match in NAIA history.

"I didn't even see where the ball went after I shot it," said Pedersen, whose goal was her 24th of the season. "It's the most important goal I've scored, and it feels really good."

The title was the second for the Blue Raiders, who also won the 2004 NAIA championship.
