DALLAS, TX (KAUZ) -

Midwestern State battled to stay even for 90 minutes against perennial region power Colorado School of Mines in opening round of the NCAA Division II Playoffs Tuesday afternoon at DBU's Patriot Soccer Field.

Then in the opening minute of overtime, CSM's Haley Cole hit the post and Brooke Stoermer deposited the rebound for her ninth goal of the season to provide the winning 1-0 margin.

The Orediggers (16-3-1) move to face host and top seed Dallas Baptist in the South Central Region semifinal Saturday at 1 p.m.

Midwestern State, which carried a nationally ranking for two reporting periods this season reaching No. 11 in the United Soccer Coaches' Poll, end the season with its fifth-straight loss and an 11-8-1 record.

Colorado School of Mines controlled possession and run-of-play throughout the match generating 23 shots to just two for MSU. The Orediggers also produced all eight corner kick chances in the match.

Freshman Kelly Cannistra put a shot on frame from inside the box in the 29th minute, while sophomore Sarah Stewart attempted a shot from beyond 25 yards out in the 61st minute.

Senior goalkeeper Courtney Burnette made eight saves in her final game for the Maroon & Gold.

Midwestern State is slated to return 22 letter winners in 2018 including 10 student-athletes which made at least 10 starts this season.
