Cooper lifted GW to its fifth consecutive victory with an overtime game-winning goal against James Madison on Sunday. With the score in a deadlock at the end of regulation and for the majority of the first overtime period, Cooper put GW on top when she weaved past the Dukes' defense and shot the ball into the back of the net with just 30 seconds remaining in the extra frame.

Earlier in the week, Cooper recorded a goal and an assist in a 4-1 victory at Delaware State and is now one assist away from taking 10th place on GW's all-time career assists list. She leads all Colonials with 24 shots on goal and is tied for first with eight points.
