The Wildcats had the better of the play, out-shooting the Vikings 14-7 in the game, including 12-4 in the second half and overtime.

C-SC’s best opportunity came in the early moments of the first overtime when Isabella Aranda drilled a shot that was blocked at the defense. In the scramble for the loose ball, Montse Caparroshad an opportunity but Grand View goalkeeper Clenka Hommel was a blessed to corral the shot.

The Wildcats also had four corner kicks in the overtime and held an 8-1 edge overall.

Trinity Register made three saves in the game to earn her sixth shutout of the season.

The Wildcats, now 8-3-1 overall and 4-2-1 in the Heart, is scheduled to play at Iowa Wesleyan College at Bracewell Stadium in Burlington, Iowa, Thursday morning, Oct. 14. Game time is set for 10 a.m.

The Pioneers jumped to an early lead in each of the first two sets to put the Wildcats back on their heels.
