Northwood countered, scoring in the 16th minute on a penalty kick goal after a foul in the box by Ohio Dominican to tie the game at 1-1.
But the Panthers would score the game winning goal with 4:45 remaining in the second overtime before the match could go to a shootout, as Johnson was fouled in the box and scored on her penalty kick goal to earn a 2-1 (2OT) win for Ohio Dominican.
With the victory, the Panthers advanced to the GLIAC Tournament semifinals for the third-straight year before falling 2-0 to Grand Valley State, which finished as the 2016 NCAA Division II Runner-Up and went unbeaten in GLIAC play.
