A penalty kick by senior midfielder Justine Fisher 6:29 into overtime gave the Navy women's soccer team a trip to the Patriot League title game, as it defeated No. 4 seed Lafayette, 1-0, at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility in Annapolis.

Fisher's penalty kick was awarded after she was tackled from behind on a breakaway. The shot secured Navy (16-4-1) a spot in tomorrow's title game against Bucknell at 1 p.m.

Both teams had at least two opportunities to score during regulation, including a shot just wide in the early minutes of the game by Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year Stacy Finley of Navy, and a one-on-one shot by the Mids' Emily Myers that didn't have enough behind it.

UMBC 2, Monmouth 1: Nicole Grinspoon converted a corner kick from Laura Motley in the 89th minute to lead the second-seeded Retrievers (11-5-2) over the third-seeded Hawks (11-5-2) in the semifinals of the Northeast Conference tournament at St. Francis University in Loretto, Pa.

Grinspoon tallied her first goal of the game, beating Monmouth goalie Abby Shilfler with a 15-yard blast in the 16th minute to give the Retrievers a 1-0 lead.

Loyola scored first as Ogilvie tallied his first goal with 16:42 left in the game.
