San Jose, Calif.-Jessica Domingo scored in the 103rd minute for Hawaii to help the Rainbow Wahine defeat the San Jose State women's soccer team 1-0 in the second overtime Sunday evening of the Western Athletic Conference match.

Domingo's goal came as she hit a ball directly in front of the Spartan goal. San Jose State keeper Adrienne Herbst came out to challenge the play and the ball trickled by her and into the goal. Domingo got the ball of passes from Joelle Sugai and Natasha Kai.

The two teams played a very close match with Hawaii only outshooting the Spartans 16-15. Hawaii had seven corner kicks compared to just three for San Jose State. Kai, the WAC Preseason Player of the Year, had seven shots but only two on goal for Hawaii. Spartan Heather Dickinson took two shots on goal for the Spartans, while Christina Morrison, Kristin Krale and Kirstin Tanaka each took one shot on goal.

San Jose State is now 5-10-1 overall and 2-3-1 in the WAC, while Hawaii improves to 12-5-2 overall and 5-3 in the WAC. The Spartans travel to Santa Clara Tuesday evening for a Rivalry Series match before playing at Rice and Tulsa next weekend.
