WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rachael Lee scored the game winning goal in overtime as Howard defeated VMI, 1-0 in the women's soccer home opener at Greene Stadium.
The victory gives the Bison its first win of the season and improves them to 1-0. The loss puts the Keydets at 0-1.
Lee scored the unassisted game winner at 90:46. The Canada native was instrumental in the Howard victory and took all three of her attempts in the second period to pull HU within striking distance of the Keydets, who outshot the Bison 17-10.
Goalkeeper Jessamyn Perkins picked up six saves in the victory while Heidi Beemer took the loss for VMI.
Howard returns to action on Sunday with a non-conference matchup at home against Radford at 2pm.
