MARSHALL, Minn. - The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs completed a perfect trip to Minnesota with a 2-1 overtime victory Sunday over the Northern State Wolves.

The match was a neutral-site affair held on the campus of Southwest Minnesota State, which the Mountain Lions defeated on Saturday. UCCS improved to 2-1 while Northern State fell to 0-1-1.

Northern State took the early lead just 12:30 into the contest when UCCS allowed an own goal.  The Mountain Lions answered back in the second half, however, on a Kylie Ashton to Kristin Preble play at the 72nd minute.

Following the end of regulation, UCCS wasted little time in ending the first overtime period on Brianna Guzzardo's third goal of the season just 5:42 into the extra stanza to give the Mountain Lions the final 2-1 victory. Julia Saenz got the assist.

Kelly Schroeder made four saves in earning her second straight win.
