Colleges: Tampa women fall in double-overtime

No.8 Carson-Newman’s Trenna Howell scored on a breakaway in the second overtime to deny the University of Tampa a fourth consecutive victory and keep the Eagles undefeated with a 1-0 victory at the Columbus State Invitational on Friday afternoon.

The Spartans (3-3-1) had more than held their own with the Eagles (7-0-0), and had created more chances in the first 15 minutes of the overtime period, Brittan Spence, Katie LaPorta and Jazmin Perry all having shots saved by C-N goalkeeper Lauren MacKenzie in the overtime period before Howell snuck a shot past Saige Steinmetz into the left corner of the net.

The Spartans had the better of the play in regulation as well, outshooting the Eagles 8-4 over the first 90 minutes, but they may be disappointed not to have pressed MacKenzie into more action with only two of their shots hitting the target.

The Spartans will face another ranked opponent in tournament host No.6 Columbus State on Sunday at 1 p.m.
