Second overtime game results in first draw
WICHITA, Ks. - Northwest Missouri State soccer team finished their first road trip of the year by tying the Newman University Jets 2-2 Saturday afternoon in non-conference women's soccer action. Victoria Von Mende was responsible for both of the Bearcats goals.
It is the second overtime game and first draw of the season for the Bearcats who are now off to a 2-1-1 start to the 2011 season. It was also the first draw of the season for the Jets who are also 2-1-1 on the season.
Northwest struck first when Von Mende scored off of an assist by Tammie Eiberger in the 12th minute. That would be the only goal of the first half for the Bearcats. The Jets would even the score to 1-1 less than a minute before halftime when Bianca Torres snuck a shot past Northwest goalkeeper Kelsey Adams off of an assist by Megan Hostick. It was the first goal of the season for Torres.
The Bearcats would retake the lead in the 57th minute when Von Mende scored her second goal of the day and fourth goal of the 2011 season. However, Newman would once again tie the game at 2-2 in the 87th minute when Celia Myers scored her fourth goal of the season off of an assist by Lorielle Slates. This would be the final goal of the day for either team.
The Bearcats open MIAA action this week when they travel to Truman State University on Thursday. Northwest will then return home to face Southwest Baptist on Saturday at Bearcat Pitch.
