VIENNA — Sophomore Alyanna James scored a goal in overtime to lead the Concord University women’s soccer team to a 2-1 win at Ohio Valley University Saturday.

The victory, Concord’s fifth consecutive win, improves the Mountain Lions’ record to 6-6-2 overall and 3-4-1 in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The loss drops Ohio Valley’s overall record to 2-12-0 and its WVIAC record to 0-7-0.

The Mountain Lions successfully defended four Ohio Valley shot attempts in the final minutes of the second half, but none of their own three shots were able to find the back of the net as the half came to a close with the scored tied at 1-1.

At 6:05 into overtime James was able score off of a one-on-one opportunity to earn the win and keep Concord’s winning streak alive. The score was her second game-winning goal of the year.

Concord plays next Oct. 16, hosting West Liberty.
