SPOKANE, Wash. – Lewis & Clark went into double overtime Saturday in their road match against the Whitworth Pirates. The Pirates found the back of the net with six minutes left in the second overtime, leading them to a 2-1 win. The loss drops the Pioneers to 5-11-1, and 4-8-1 in Northwest Conference play.

Lewis & Clark's first shot happened 33 minutes later when Caroline Hennes took a free kick from 30 yards out, which was saved by Whitworth's goalkeeper.

With two minutes left in the half, a handball in the box allowed the Pioneers a free kick. Hennes slotted the ball into the goal, scoring her eighth goal of the season. The goal left the game tied 1-1 going into the second half.
