Davis, Calif. - Long Beach State scored two unanswered goals in the fourth quarter to send their opening-round game with No. 18 Cal State Northridge into overtime, but the Matadors returned the favor with two goals in the second overtime to take a 7-5 lead.
Cal State Northridge got on the board first with a goal from Jenny Jamison, but Long Beach State scored the next two goals to take a 2-1 lead after the first quarter. The Matadors answered back with two goals, but McKeon scored with just one second remaining in the second to tie the game at 3-3 heading into halftime.

Melissa Matheson scored to bring LBSU within one goal, and Chelsea Parks tied up the game with 1:25 remaining to send the game to overtime.
Ringel and the 49ers held the Matadors scoreless in the first overtime period, but two goals in the second gave the win to Cal State Northridge.
