Minnesota Duluth coach Greg Cane's 250th career victory Sunday was one of the most nerve-wracking and exciting wins in his 24-year tenure.

The Bulldogs scored three unanswered goals to battle back from a two-goal second-half deficit and beat Wayne (Neb.) State College 5-4 in overtime in an NSIC game at Malosky Stadium.

Cane is the 18th coach to hit the 250-win milestone at the NCAA Division II level.

Natalie St. Martin scored 5:11 into the extra session to give the Bulldogs (9-5-2 overall, 6-5-2 NSIC) the crucial victory.

Destiny Schmitz and Emily Fleissner of Duluth scored first-half goals but the Wildcats (3-8-5, 2-7-4) took a 4-2 lead two minutes into the second half.

Skye Finley's left-footed shot cut the lead to one and Madison Carey tied it in the 76th minute before St. Martin won it as UMD scored five goals in a game for the first time since Oct. 4, 2013.
