UMBC senior midfielder Milo Kapor converted his third penalty kick of the season in as many tries in the 77th minute and the Retrievers (5-3-4, 0-1-1 America East) rallied from an early deficit and played host New Hampshire (4-4-3, 0-1-1) to a 1-1 double-overtime draw Saturday. New Hampshire had opened the scoring in the 23rd minute. Retrievers junior Phil Saunders (Perry Hall) made two saves.

The Mids extended the nation's longest active winning streak to 14 games. Navy held a late lead but gave up an own goal in the 86th minute to tie the game at 2.
