By The Hays Daily News

WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- The Fort Hays State University women's soccer team ended its miraculous run through the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association tournament by securing the championship in double overtime on its opponent's homefield.

The Tigers won 2-1 Sunday against No. 1 seed University of Central Missouri (16-2-3), ranked No. 12 in NCAA Division II.

It's the Tigers' first MIAA championship in the program's two-year history, and the victory clinched a spot for them in the NCAA Division II Tournament.

FHSU (14-6-1) did it in the most difficult way possible as well, knocking off the No. 3, No. 2 and No. 1 seeds en route to the championship.

FHSU junior forward Joanne Glynn hit the game winner in the 107th minute. After UCM miscleared the ball, Glynn collected it and scored.

The Tigers took an early 1-0 lead with just under 2 minutes in the match. Freshman forward Jordan Hester shot from the center of the box on a short pass from senior midfielder Bethany Keefer.

It was Hester's team-leading 10th goal of the season and second of the tournament. She aso scored the game winner in double overtime against No. 2 seed University of Central Oklahoma in the semifinal game.

Central Missouri quickly responded, scoring a goal in the 10th minute as Aaryn Burke knocked in a rebound.

The match remained 1-1 for the next 97 minutes until Glynn scored the golden goal.

FHSU sophomore goalkeeper Nicole Barnaba made five saves in the match.

The NCAA Tournament field will be announced at 6:30 p.m. today.

The FHSU men also will be vying for a national tournament slot. The Tigers finished their season 11-5-2 and were ranked No. 2 in the most recent Central region rankings ahead of Truman State University (10-6-1). The top two teams in the region earn a playoff berth.

FHSU and Truman each lost in the semifinal round of the MIAA Tournament. The Tigers lost 2-1 to No. 16 Lindenwood University, while Truman fell 2-0 to No. 14 Northeastern State University.

Lindenwood, the regular season champions, also won the tournament title, defeating Northeastern State 1-0.

The men's selection show will begin at 6 p.m. today.
