TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Alabama women's soccer team won its third straight Southeastern Conference game for the first time since 2013, defeating Missouri, 3-2, in overtime on Sunday afternoon at the Alabama Soccer Complex.

Junior Abbie Boswell netted the penalty kick 53 seconds into the extra period to propel the Crimson Tide (11-6-1, 3-5-1 SEC) past the Tigers (6-11-1, 2-7-0 SEC). Sunday's victory marked the first time in program history the Tide has topped the Tigers in Tuscaloosa. 

Boswell scored two goals in the game with her first coming 24 seconds into the contest. After Missouri tied the game in the 28th minute, senior Alexis Mouton responded with a goal in the 38th minute. The Tigers added a goal right before the half to tie the game at 2-2.

Just 53 seconds into the overtime period junior Emma Welch was fouled inside the box to setup the penalty kick for Boswell, who pushed the ball past the goalkeeper on the right side to give the Tide the win.

Alabama returns to the pitch on Thursday, Oct. 26 to take on Ole Miss at 7 p.m. CT in Oxford, Miss.
