Silvey Scores in 1-1 Tie
MARYVILLE, Mo.-Northwest Missouri State and Northeastern State each took advantage of the wind in dueling to a 1-1 tie Sunday at Bearcat Pitch in the home opener for the Bearcats.
Northwest played with wind gusts of more than 20 miles per hour at their backs in the first half and scored on a Hannah Silvey strike in the 14th minute. Andrea Freeman found Silvey wide open in the middle of the field 30 yards away and Silvey delivered a strike over the head of RiverHawk keeper Deb Hill.
It was the first goal of the season for Northwest (0-1-1) and first for Silvey in a Bearcat uniform. Silvey scored five goals in two seasons at Iowa Western Community College before joining the Bearcats this season.
Emilee Davison just missed on giving the Bearcats a two-goal lead towards the end of the first half. Her shot from the right side drilled the bar and bounced away. Northwest out shot Northeastern State 6-4 in the first half.
The RiverHawks (1-0-1) had a two-shot advantage playing with the wind in the second half. Jennifer Clark had an open look on the right side of the box that was deflected away by Northwest keeper Kelsey Adams early in the second half. Clark had a chance at a rebound, but the shot was blocked and then cleared.
Adams made three of her four saves in the second half, but gave up the equalizer with less than six minutes left in regulation. Ashley Dolezel found her way through three Northwest defenders and sent a shot to the left side of the net to tie the game. It was the first goal of the season for the junior from Rogers, Texas.
The RiverHawks took three of the four shots attempted in overtime but neither team could put a shot on goal. Hill finished with four saves to match Adams.
