NKU ousted in Div. II women's Final Four

Sandfoss, Black goals not enough

Enquirer staff, wire reports

        SAN DIEGO - Erika Alfredson scored two goals Friday to lead the University of California at San Diego to a 3-2 win over Northern Kentucky University in the women's soccer NCAA Division II Final Four semifinals.

        Alfredson headed in a pair of shots off corner kicks in the first half as UC San Diego (20-2) took a 2-1 lead. Stephanie Sandfoss tallied the NKU goal before halftime.

        Laura Dooly gave the Tritons a 3-1 lead 15 minutes into the second half with a goal that was assisted by Kristin Jones. Bessie Black cut the deficit to 3-2 with a goal at the 74:58 mark, but the Norse (22-2) were unable to find the net for a tying score in the closing moments.

        UC San Diego will meet Christian Brothers (Tenn.) University - a 4-1 winner over Franklin Pierce (N.H.) College in the other Final Four match Friday - on Sunday for the national championship.
