TEANECK, N.J. – Lucy Shepherd’s goal with 4:21 remaining in the second extratime gave Hofstra a 2-1 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson at University Stadium Thursday night.

Fairleigh Dickinson (2-5) got on the board at the 24:59 on a goal from Viktorija Miseljic, who converted a rebound off a shot from Madelyn Robbins.
The Pride finally broke through 50:13 when Sabrina Bryan picked up a loose ball in the box and put a shot past FDU keeper Amanda Fitzgerald to tie the score.
Late in the second extratime, Lucy Porter slid a pass to Shepherd on the right wing and the sophomore put the shot into the left side of the goal for the first game-winning goal of her career.
Hofstra goalkeeper Ashley Wilson made seven saves in goal. The Pride outshot the Knights, 17-13.
Fitzgerald had seven saves for FDU.
