Six minutes later, Ana Paula Silva netted the equalizer and then Kanu got a goal for herself to put Pensacola in front.
Tucker scored again for Utah in the 89th to put the game in stalemate and send it into extra time, while in extra time, Morris hit her brace-which was the match winner and ended the seven-goal thriller which gave unbeaten Pensacola the Women’s Premier Soccer League title.
