HONOLULU, Hawaii – After 92 minutes of scoreless soccer Sacramento State junior forward Kayla Collins found a golden goal in the first overtime period to give the Hornets a 1-0 win over BYU-Hawaii in a neutral site game Saturday in Honolulu.

BYU-Hawaii (0-2-0) had just one shot on goal in the game but goalkeeper Camille Jones kept her team in it with 11 saves.
