Mastodons fall in final of Summit League women's soccer tourney

IPFW's record-setting women's soccer season came to an end Sunday when the Mastodons lost 2-0 to Oakland in the Summit League tournament championship game in Brookings, S.D.

IPFW (10-8-1) set a school record with 10 victories, and the season marked the second time in the program's history that it had a winning record.

Oakland (11-5-3) took a 1-0 lead in the 37th minute, and the Grizzlies withstood two IPFW chances before halftime when shots from Mastodons Cassie Egle and Tessa Edwards sailed wide of the Oakland goal.

Nicole DeLuca scored Oakland's second goal in the 74th minute.

Good, Tylar Allison and Sydney Hoareau were IPFW players named to the All-Tournament team.

With the win, Oakland advances to the NCAA tournament.
