POCATELLO, Idaho -
The Wyoming Cowgirl soccer team fell behind early to Idaho State, but came back to tie the Bengals 1-1 on Sunday afternoon in Pocatello, Idaho. The tie puts the Cowgirls at 5-4-1 on the season while Idaho State is now 2-5-2.
Wyoming has played one overtime game earlier this season against Montana, but this was the first double overtime match for the team this year.
"We came out slow to start the game today and gave up an early goal," said UW head coach Danny Sanchez. "After the goal we responded well and matched it with a score of our own."
The scoring started when ISU player Ryan Lauren scored in the 31st minute. Wyoming came out fast after giving up the goal when senior Amanda Lathrop was able to tie the game at the 35:52 mark. Seniors Tamika Wilson and Laine Hubbard were credited with assists on the play.
"We played better in the second half and had some decent opportunities, we just weren't able to get the game winning goal," Sanchez continued.
The Cowgirls outshot the Bengals 22-12 for the game and 7-3 in the two overtime periods. Jamie Scarcliff went the distance for the Cowgirls at goalie and made one save in the overtime periods.
Wyoming returns home this weekend after going 3-0-1 in the past four road games. They will take on Utah State on Sunday, September 28th. Kickoff from the Louis S. Madrid Sports Complex is set for high noon.
