OSKALOOSA, Iowa – Kate Morford scored off a Mara Rhodes assist with 55 seconds remaining in the second overtime to give Simpson a dramatic 1-0 win over William Penn Tuesday night.

The Storm (4-12) dominated the ball on the night, outshooting the Statesmen (5-9) 22-9, including 2-0 in overtime.

An aggressive Storm attack saw eight different players take shots on the night, led by Meredith Harrison with six and Lauren Stillman with four.

Kristin Riley was a solid all night for the Storm at goalkeeper, stopping all six of the Statesmen’s shots on goal on her way to her second shutout of the year.
