NCAA Women’s Soccer Elite Eight set as third round concludes Sunday
The third round of the 2021 NCAA DI women’s soccer championship came to a close on Sunday, with the last seven matches of the round taking place throughout the afternoon and evening.
The match of the day was Rutgers vs. TCU. The Scarlet Knights got on the board first in the 18th minute through a goal by Amirah Ali and looked to be in good position to hold that lead through the final whistle. But TCU’s Camryn Lancaster hit the equalizer with only five minutes to play in the match.
Neither team could find the winning goal in the first or second overtime periods, so they went to a penalty shootout. The first eight players — four from each team — all converted their penalties. Then things got interesting. Watch the full PK shootout below:
