NEW ULM, Minn. - Hannah Mattek of the MLC women's soccer team scored in the final minute to beat Crown 2-1 at Knight Field Saturday.

Carina Rahn tied the game in the 62nd minute with her first career goal off a pass from Bethany Schultz, and then Mattek came through with the winner unassisted with just 54 seconds to play in the game. The goal was the third of the season for Mattek.
Mattek finished the game with 15 shots (five on goal), and Schultz added ten shots for MLC.
Katelyn Malley went the distance in goal for MLC, saving seven of the eight shots she faced.
