Slugs Fall to Concordia-Moorehead
An overtime defensive miscue by UC Santa Cruz provided a premium scoring opportunity for Concordia-Moorhead. In the 98th minute Sarah Rounds stole possession from the Banana Slugs central defender and raced towards goal for a one-on-one with the keeper. From about 15 yards out she placed her shot low and to the right, outside the reach of goalkeeper Monica Chazen.
Rounds assisted on the game's opening goal serving a cross in to teammate Laura Prosinski. Her header inside the penalty area went over the hands of Chazen giving Concordia what would be a short-lived advantage.
Within one minute of conceding a goal UC Santa Cruz replied off a set piece. From the right corner of the 18-yard box Chay Thomas' well-driven cross was redirected by teammate Antonia Darragh for the equalizer.
Chazen for UCSC and Ali Nelson for the Cobbers each made five saves in goal for their respective clubs.
