The Pitt Panthers defeated the Razorbacks, in Fayetteville, on Friday night with a 4-3 final.

And, yes, as the score indicates, and Rachael Kriger reported, the match was a back-and-forth-affair, with the game-winning goal coming Ellie Coffield’s header that emanated from a Sarah Schupansky corner kick.
