Isaac responded just over a minute later, finishing a cross from Imani Washington, and Jackson would give the Wildcats a 2-1 advantage in the 31st on a breakaway.

Lancaster's Scott Endres drew the teams level in the 74th minute, heading home a cross from Palomino-Mendoza, but Isaac restored the lead in the 78th minute, finishing a cross from Jackson to make it 3-2.

Shavoy Brown would deny the hosts their 10th straight victory late in regulation, pouncing on a rebound in the 82nd minute to even the score at 3-3.

Little finished with three saves on the day for Johnson & Wales.
