The Warriors trailed the Eagles throughout the entire second half, 3-1, but put two balls into the goal in the final 75 seconds to gain a tie.

Freshman Alexis Riksen, who had been out with a knee injury suffered early in last Wednesday’s game against Covenant Christian, got the Warriors rolling. She was inserted in the lineup with about five minutes remaining in the game and scored with 75 seconds left to make it 3-2.

Senior Timera Crosby then tied the game with 20 seconds to play.
