STATE COLLEGE — Nicole Rupnik found the net 6:32 into overtime Thursday afternoon as Cedar Cliff upended State College 2-1.

Olivia Dalby tied it, also off a penalty corner, in the second half.
Megan McCarthy made three saves for State College.
“It is great to see this team improve from game to game,” Lady Little Lion coach Karin Johnson said. “It was a tough fight and I feel we played a full 60-minute game, plus overtime play. Building and improving from game-to-game is exactly what we are doing, and I’m very happy with their determination and focus.”
