KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Katie Lenz scored an incredible equalizer off a rebound in the 89th to send in the match into overtime as Tennessee and Auburn played to a 1-1 draw on Friday night.

Tennessee stands at 7-5-3 overall and 2-3-2 in the SEC. Auburn is now 4-8-3 on the year with a 0-5-2 mark in the league.

Both teams had several close calls in overtime, but were unable to score the golden goal. With just six seconds left in the second extra session, Caroline Brown was awarded a free kick from just outside the box, but the ball was knocked down and time expired.

Auburn scored in the 61st minute to take a 1-0 lead when Haley Gerken played a ball forward for Casie Ramsier inside the box and she put it in the right side of the net.

In the eighth minute, Caroline Brown had a shot from the far side that Auburn keeper Alicen Wright turned away. In the 17th minute, Cheyenne Spade fired a free kick from just outside the left side of the box that sailed wide left.

In the 21st minute, Auburn played a ball deep in the Tennessee box and a cross by Casie Ramsier sailed just a bit high for an AU attacker charging up the middle. Off a corner kick by Haley Gerken in the 24th minute, Auburn had a cross low along the ground across the back line that Eckel played up to cover.

Tennessee missed out on a terrific scoring opportunity in the 31st minute when Brown played a ball into the box off a breakaway. Brown drew in the goalkeeper on the near side before passing it to Hannah Wilkinson in the center of the box. With just two Auburn defenders split in front of her and no keeper, Wilkinson's shot sailed over the crossbar.

UT had another good scoring chance in the 37th minute when Brittney Wade curved a short ball over to Brown but Wright came sliding in to meet Brown and the ball.

Auburn played a great ball into the box in the 40th minute, crossing deep inside the box for Ramsier who fired a shot off the left post.

At the half, each team had five shots and Auburn had a 3-2 edge on corner kicks.

Auburn scored in the 61st minute to take a 1-0 lead when Haley Gerken played a ball forward for Casie Ramsier inside the box and she put it in the right side of the net.

In the 82nd minute, a ball played from midfield found Wilkinson in the AU third of the field and the junior forward sprinted inside the box and fired over the crossbar. However, the play was whistled dead as Wilkinson was called offsides, UT's 10th offsides call of the night.

Tennessee next heads to Fayetteville, Ark., to face Arkansas on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET. UT will celebrate Senior Night when it plays its final regular-season home match on Oct. 25 against Florida, which is also GOAL PINK Night, supporting the fight against Breast Cancer.
