SAN FRANCISCO - Jocelyn Blankenship converted an penalty kick opportunity in the 85th minute to force extra time and the Lions snapped a 14-game losing streak with a 1-1 double overtime draw at San Francisco Sunday.

The Dons (6-8-4, 1-4-2 WCC) struck first on an Amanda Whittle goal at the 28:26 mark. Following a slow offensive first period for both teams, the Lions came out firing in the second half, holding a 7-3 edge in shots.

Then came the breakthrough at the 85-minute mark as a USF foul in its own box awarded LMU its third PK of the year. Blankenship, who had converted one previously this season, struck the ball into the net for the equalizer and her team-leading fourth goal of the year.

Facing extra time for just the second time in 19 games played, the Lions remained undefeated in overtime with the 1-1 draw. In their fourth game of the year, LMU beat UC Santa Barbara, 1-0, in 2OT.

LMU (3-15-1, 0-7-1 WCC) closes out the 2013 season Saturday, Nov. 9, hosting PCH Cup and WCC rival Pepperdine. The Lions' 11 seniors will be honored in a pre-game ceremony prior to the 6 p.m. kick off at Sullivan Field.
