Down one goal with three seconds remaining, graduate student attacker Nicolas Saveljic lobbed the ball toward center pool with sophomore attacker Makoto Kenney lurking.
Kenney drilled a line drive into the right side of the goal to knot the contest at 12 and force overtime.
Scoreless until that point, two-time MPSF Player of the Year and Golden Bear center Nikolaos Papanikolaou shoveled a shot in the first overtime period and tipped in another in the subsequent period to give California a multi-goal advantage.
Senior attacker/utility Jake Cavano responded with a goal of his own, but the Golden Bears’ goal with 13 seconds to play all but ended the contest.
