Unbeaten and untied West Florida and Saint Rose both fall

[NCAA DIVISION II WOMEN] No. 1 West Florida and No. 2 Saint Rose came into the NCAA Division II women's semifinals with perfect records but both fell in stunning fashion. Grand Valley State came back from 2-0 down after three minutes to beat Saint Rose, while Cal State Dominguez Hills beat West Florida in a shootout after their game ended in a 1-1 tie.

Saint Rose, which had only given up six goals in its previous 23 games, appeared headed to the final after taking a 2-0 lead on goals by Nicola D'Errico and Brittany Godin, but Grand Valley State equalized on goals by Erin Mruz and Jaleen Dingledine and won the game on Kristen Eible's golden goal.

Dominguez's win put Coach Joe Flanagan in a Division II final for the second year in a row. He won the men's title with the Toros in 2008. Jamaican Shakira Duncan had put West Florida ahead but Yadira Gomez tied the score for CSUDH.
