Bearcats and Lopers Play to 1-1 Tie
MARYVILLE, Mo. – The Northwest Missouri State women’s soccer team played a hard fought game Friday against Nebraska-Kearney as they went into two overtimes and played to a 1-1 tie.
Both teams came out very aggressive trying to take an early lead.
UNK was able to get on the board first with a goal in the seventh minute to go up 1-0.
Elisabeth Lee did not wait long to knot the game up at 1-1 as she put in an unassisted goal in the 22nd minute.
The second half was a grudge match with both teams playing stellar defense and not allowing a clean shot on goal. The Lopers were able to outshoot the Bearcats in the second half, six to three.
Northwest managed only one shot in both overtime periods while UNK was able to get off five but could not find the back of the net as the game ended 1-1.
Kelsey Adams posted 10 saves in the contest. It is the second time this season Adams posted double-digit saves.
The tie pushes Northwest’s season record to 4-7-2, 2-4-1. The Bearcats will be right back at it Sunday as they play host to Fort Hays State with an early 11 a.m. kickoff as the team will honor their seniors at halftime.
