Prince Powers Falcons in Double Overtime, 2-1

MONTEVALLO, Ala. – For the second time in four games sophomore Christine Prince (Ajax, Ontario/Pickering) scored an overtime goal to give the University of Montevallo women's soccer team (6-11-1, 3-6-1 PBC) a victory. Prince scored a goal with just 1:15 left in the second overtime to close out the Falcons season on a high note. UM defeated Peach Belt Conference foe Georgia Southwestern State University (3-15-0, 0-10-0 PBC), 2-1 in double overtime on the road. UM's other goal came from freshman Camilla Alderin (Oslo, Norway/Persbraten Videregaende Skole) who scored the game-tying goal in the 18th minute of action.

The Hurricanes struck first in the contest at the 12:28 mark as Brittney Hill scored on a cross from Carolann Simpson. Alderin responded just five minutes later as she took a long range shot that beat the GSW keeper to tie the game at one. Despite the early goal-scoring action neither team was able to capatilize on the momentum. The teams entered halftime with Montevallo leading in shots 9-3.

Junior Alyssa Maxwell (Surrey, British Columbia/Semiahmoo) played the opening 45 minutes in goal for the Falcons as she made a pair of saves and allowed the lone goal. Sophomore Kaitlin Thomas (Calgary, Alberta/Foothills Composite) took over for the second half and two overtime periods as she made just one save and took home the victory evening out her record to 6-6 on the season.

Both teams could not get going offensively in the second half as UM barely out shot the Hurricanes 5-4.

The first overtime period mirrored the second half as Montevallo managed two shots while GSW had none. The heroics came in the second overtime period as freshman Olivia McKenzie (Harvest, Ala./Sparkman) found Prince who used her ability to get an open shot and give the Falcons their sixth victory of the season.

UM ended the match out-shooting the Hurricanes 17-8 with a 8-4 advantage in shots on goal.
