TAMPA, Fla. — Janae Godoy delivered Seattle Pacific’s first women’s soccer title on a goal with 2:13 left in the final overtime Saturday, a 1-0 overtime victory over previously undefeated West Florida in the NCAA Division II championship game at Pepin Stadium.
Godoy directed a 10-yard blast from the left side of the goal mouth into the upper right for the winning goal. It was the fifth game-winning goal in the last seven games for the junior midfielder and her eighth goal of the season.
Junior Jocelyn Charette was credited with an assist after receiving a cross from Alex Butler at the right flank. Charette headed the ball down, setting Godoy up with an opening to shoot.
The fourth-ranked Falcons (22-1-2) won the school’s ninth national championship. The SPU men won five soccer titles and the women’s gymnastics team is a three-time champion.
