Round Three Recap: Despite a dominating performance, the Bluejays needed a come-from-behind effort and overtime to keep their season alive in a 2-1 win over No. 22 Connecticut last Saturday in Omaha. UConn struck first with a goal in the 33rd minute, and held that lead until junior Chris Schuler headed in his first goal since his freshman season in the 79th minute. The Jays out-shot UConn 25-6 in regulation, but needed 8:32 of extra time before Seth Sinovic flicked a header into the back of the net for the game-winner in the 99th minute. Andrei Gotsmanov assisted both goals on set plays. CU finished with a season-high 26 shots and Gotsmanov tied his own Morrison Stadium record with 10 shots as the Jays moved their unbeaten streak to 15 matches.
