Women's Soccer: On to the Finals

A season on the line. Overtime. One penalty kick.

It's doesn't get much more dramatic than that, and that's exactly what the women's soccer team overcame against host school Siena on Friday night, defeated the Saints 5-4 in penalty kicks after the two teams were scoreless through regulation and two overtime periods.

Cool stat of the night: women's soccer is 5-0 all-time in game's decided by penalty kicks.

Up next, a MAAC championship showdown against our "new rival schol": the Loyola Greyhounds (who defeated Canisius, 4-2, later that evening). The game will be played in Loudonville, N.Y., with a 1pm gametime.
