PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Junior midfielder Sarah Kollhoff (Exton, Pa/Downington) netted her third goal of the night with just 47 seconds to play in regulation to knot the Atlantic 10 contest against La Salle at 14-14 and send it into overtime, but the host Explorers scored the only goal in the bonus period to earn their first conference win of the season by a score of 15-14.
HOW IT HAPPENED
