Cowgirls Win Overtime Thriller
Sept. 15, 2006
RENO, Nev. -
Emily Layton scored her second goal of the season in the 105th minute of the first overtime as the University of Wyoming Cowgirls soccer team handed the Nevada Wolf Pack their first loss of the season, 2-1, Friday night at Mackay Stadium in Reno, Nev. With the win the Cowgirls improve to 2-4-1 on the season and Nevada falls to 4-1-1.
Wyoming's game winning goal came on an assist from sophomore Comfort Adetoye on a give-and-go to the streaking Layton to lift the Cowgirls to their second victory of the season.
Nevada jumped out to an early 1-0 lead as junior midfielder Kenishia Warren scored her second goal of the year at the 4:56 mark.
"We really bounced back after going down 1-0 in the first five minutes of the game," Wyoming head coach Anne Moore said.
The Cowgirls continued to play hard and came out in the second half and knotted the score at 1-1 as Adetoye scored her first goal of the year beating two Wolf Pack defenders on a breakaway.
"The field was turf, which really played to our advantage because we possess the ball so well," Moore continued. "Our defense played great and our midfielders did a good job as well. It was a solid team effort."
Wyoming had not won a road game since October 28, 2005 as they beat Air Force 3-0.
Wyoming returns to action Sunday at Mackay Stadium to face Boise State. Kickoff is set for 12:00p.m. (Mountain Time).
