MILWAUKEE -- The Alverno College soccer team was downed by North Central University, 5-1, in the team's final game at the Mount Mary University Invitational Saturday afternoon.

The Inferno finished the kickoff tournament with an even 1-1 record after a thrilling 2-1 double-overtime victory over Crown College Friday evening.

After the Rams (2-0) struck first in the 12th minute of play, Alverno's Rikki Nelson connected on a free kick to tie the game at 1-1 in the 21st minute.

A minute later NCU's Dakotah Sparrman scored the go-ahead goal and the Inferno defense was unable to slow down the Rams' potent attack they added three more scores in the second half.

The next action for Alverno is the team's home opener Saturday, September 9 versus visiting Maranatha Baptist University. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. at Alverno Field.
