After 90 minutes of regulation and two overtime periods went scoreless, Stanford beat North Carolina on penalty kicks (5-4) to win the D-I Women's Soccer National Championship yesterday, the program's second title in three years.

Highlight: Kiara Pickett tucked the ball into the lower left corner for the game-winning penalty kick. What a moment.
