(Swarthmore, Pa.) – The Dickinson women's soccer team remained unbeaten on the season, opening Centennial Conference play with a thrilling 1-0 win in double-overtime at #12-ranked Swarthmore College on Saturday afternoon.

Senior Addy Zandi (West Chester, Pa./B. Reed Henderson) made a strong move on the right side and sent a cross to Jessica Kiefer (Phoenix, Ariz./Pinnacle) with just 2:32 remaining in the second overtime.

Each team recorded just one shot in each overtime period, but the Red Devils made the last one count. Prior to the extra-frame Swarthmore held a 13-4 shot advantage in the match while each team had produced three corners.

Sophomore Carli Boyer (Silver Spring, Md./Bethesda-Chevy Chase) made four saves to earn the shutout in the nets for Dickinson.

The Red Devils improve to 5-0-2 on the season. They return home this week to host Franklin & Marshall on Wednesday at 6:00 pm.
