Another year, another loss to Lee University.

The Flames from Cleveland, Tenn., scored late to break a 1-all tie and beat Concordia University 2-1 in the quarterfinals of the NAIA women's soccer national tournament Wednesday afternoon.

Concordia tied the match with a goal early in the second half by Jenna Peterson, but Lee, which had taken the lead in the 34th minute, scored with 12 minutes left and held on for its 23rd consecutive playoff victory. Lee has won the past four titles, including a victory over Concordia in the final last year.

The Cavaliers finished 17-3-2 overall.

Concordia University is back in the NAIA women's soccer tournament quarterfinals after a 1-0 win Tuesday, and waiting there for them is a familiar opponent - Lee University of Cleveland, Tenn.

The Cavaliers are in the quarterfinals for the ninth time in the last 10 years, but have yet to win a title - three times losing to Lee in the 16-team national tournament. The schools met in the final last year as well as 2009.

Lee has won the last four national titles.

Wednesday, the 2 p.m. match (PST) will pit teams that spent, one or the other, the entire season ranked No. 1, according to coaches.

Concordia, after a 1-0 win over Cumberland, Tenn., is 17-2-2 overall, while Lee is 19-1-1 and has not lost a tournament match since 2007.

The Cavaliers got the lone goal of the game from senior Kaylynn Winwood, and allowed just one shot on goal Tuesday.

Concordia's men's team was dropped from the tournament after a 2-1 loss to top-seeded Lindsey Wilson on Monday, and finished their season at 16-4-1.
