MOST COMMENTED

Best known for its men's soccer program, winner of five national titles, Seattle Pacific won its first NCAA Division II women's championship on Saturday when the Falcons edged previously undefeated West Florida, 1-0, in final.

Janae Godoy scored on a blast from 10 yards with less than three minutes remaining in overtime to give her the deciding goal in three of the Falcons five playoff victories. Jocelyn Charette did one better, setting up the game-winning assist in each of the last four victories.

"It's the most amazing feeling ever. Unbelievable," Godoy said. "Being in my position, you have to run a lot to get to the back post, but it pays off when you get there. The other team just didn't get a good clearance and it was touched right to me. I knew the keeper had already gone out, so I didn't have to worry about her. I just hit it on frame."

The Falcons were competing in their third final four in the last four years and their second championship game. They lost, 2-1, in overtime to Nebraska-Omaha three years ago. Last season, the Falcons brought a perfect 23-0 record into the semifinals and then suffered a 2-0 setback against Franklin Pierce.
