Illinois advances in OT

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Illinois earned its fourth trip to the NCAA round of 16 with a thrilling come-from-behind 4-3 overtime victory against three-seed Portland on a snowy Nebraska Soccer Field. The Illini overcame a 2-0 halftime deficit and netted three second-half goals to send the NCAA second-round match to an extra period. Big Ten Forward of the Year Jannelle Flaws connected on the golden goal with a minute remaining, sending Illinois to the third round for the first time since 2008.

Following a miscommunication on a Pilots free kick near their goal, senior Megan Pawloski stole the ball and passed it to Flaws in the box, who tallied her second goal of the contest and fifth game winner on the year. She increased her school-record total to 23 goals, which is tied with Rachel Daly of St. John's (N.Y.) for the most in the nation in 2013.

Illinois will play Boston College at 1 p.m. Sunday in the NCAA tournament round of 16.
