MONTGOMERY, Ala-- The University of Mobile women's soccer team fell 2-1 to 24th-ranked Embry-Riddle in double overtime on the final day of the Capital City Classic Saturday.
The Lady Rams out shot Embry-Riddle 17-6 for the game and finished with a 7-4 edge in shots on goal, but ERAU keeper Dina Roper collected six saves to pick up the win. Mobile's Lorna Brownlie collected two saves in goal.
