DE PERE - St. Norbert College and UW-Stout tussled to a 2-2 tie in a non-conference women's soccer match at the Minahan Stadium Complex.

St. Norbert's Rachelle Barina knocked in a header at 58:06 for a goal that proved to be the equalizer. St. Norbert is now 2-2-1 on the year while the Blue Devils are 0-2-1.

Stout drew first blood 6:15 into the match when Jessica Price scored off a scramble in front of an open net. Ashley Haws scored at 10:50 to draw the Green Knights even when her shot from the top of the penalty area arced over the goaltender and into the net. Price answered at 36:32 to give Stout a 2-1 halftime advantage.

Following Barina's score, neither team would have a quality scoring chance until the second overtime. Stout would have a good chance early in the second extra session, and the Green Knights had strong pressure in the last seven minutes of the game but couldn't score.

St. Norbert held a 19-15 advantage in shots and a 9-6 edge in corner kicks. Mallory Ford made eight saves for St. Norbert, while Taylor Randle made seven saves for Stout.
