Salem, WV - Salem International University jumped on Pikeville (KY) early, but it wasn't to be as the Lady Tigers lost in an double-overtime thriller, 3-2, at Catalano Stadium Wednesday Afternoon.
Lori Will (Palm Coast, FL) scored her first goal of the season in the 31st minute when Brenda Rivera's (Pasadena, CA) corner kick was tipped by Michele Mendiola (Long Beach, CA) into the waiting boot of Will to give SIU the early lead.
Mendiola and Rivera would team up again to produce a goal just before the half struck in the 44th minute to put the Tigers up 2-0 going into the locker rooms.
The second half witnessed Pikeville come alive for two goals of their own to produce the extra periods and complete the comeback in the second OT.
Salem International University drops to 3-10-0 with only three games remaining on the schedule. The Lady Tigers will face Cedarville University on October 20th before taking on Urbana University on the 23rd and closing out the 2012 season at Lincoln (PA) on the 26th.
