Overtime's been very good to the Fresno State women's soccer team this season.
Morgan Castain scored in double overtime Sunday, pushing the Bulldogs to a 2-1 victory at Air Force for the team's fifth win in extra time.
Fresno State (8-7-2, 5-2-1 MW) needed a goal from Jaycee Bingham in the 89th minute just to get to overtime. Once the Bulldogs were there, the team knew how to close.
"I was really proud of the teams' response today, considering we went down a goal so late in the match," Fresno State coach Brian Zwaschka said. "When the goal came, we knew we had to throw everything at them."
