Danielle Wolfe scored in the sixth minute of the second overtime to lift Michigan to a 3-2 win against the Nebraska soccer team Sunday at Hibner Stadium.

The Wolverines scored the final two goals, including a game-tying header off a corner kick from Sydney Shepard in the 61st minute, which tied the match at 2-2.

Freshman Reagan Raabe got the Huskers (1-2-1) on the board three minutes into the game. The Millard West graduate intercepted a Wolverine pass across the top of the box and drilled a shot into the bottom left corner of the net for her first career goal.

Michigan tied the match in the 31st minute when the Huskers were unable to clear a ball deep in Wolverine territory.

But Nebraska responded a minute later. Dakota Chan delivered a corner kick to sophomore Marissa Popoola, who launched a header into the net for her first career goal, giving NU a 2-1 lead.

Michigan (2-1-2) outshot Nebraska 22-8, and held a 6-5 edge in shots on target.

Nebraska will close a three-game homestand against Wisconsin at 2 p.m. Saturday
