Haaland scored the “golden goal” a mere 45 second into the extra session to lift RIC to victory. Pyzynski made 14 saves to earn her fourth shutout of the season. For her efforts in both games, Pyzynski was named the Little East Conference Women’s Soccer Rookie of the Week for the second time this season.
