ST. PAUL – Following a 4-0 home defeat on Friday, the Wayne State College women’s soccer team traveled for their Sunday afternoon NSIC match.

From Sea Foam Stadium in St. Paul, Minnesota the Concordia-St. Paul Golden Bears played host to the Wildcats.

A first half and second half goal sent the match to overtime where the Golden Bears notched a goal in the first overtime to win 2-1. Concordia-St. Paul improves to 7-4-1 (5-3-1 NSIC) while the ‘Cats suffer their second straight loss to now sit 3-5-4 (2-4-3 NSIC).

It was an early goal for WSC when senior Hannah Knight scored in the 4th minute (4:45) off a cross by junior Alexis Strothers. That score carried through half before the Golden Bears tied the game with a goal in the 68th minute (68:39). Heading into overtime, WSC has not lost or won an extra time soccer match with four overtime matches under their belt on the season. But, the Golden Bears ended the tied-streak with a goal in the 90th minute (90:33).

Along with her assist, Strothers had a shot on goal while sophomore Carleigh Wilson added one shot on goal.

Sophomore goalkeeper Rachel Grisham recorded two saves while allowing two goals in 90:33.

Concordia-St. Paul outshot the ‘Cats, 15-8, as both teams placed four shots on goal. CSP had the advantage in saves (3-2) while WSC recorded eight corner kicks compared to five from Concordia.

With only six NSIC matches remaining, the Wayne State College women’s soccer team will be on the road for three more games including this weekend. WSC will visit Bemidji State on Saturday, October 14 and Minnesota Crookston on Sunday, October 15 with both matches at 1 p.m.
