Posted on October 29th, 2016 by


ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team fell by a score of 1-0 in double overtime Saturday at Hamline University to close out regular season play.

With the loss the Gusties finish the regular season with a record of 10-6-2 (6-5 MIAC).

“We created opportunities for ourselves offensively and our defense battled hard,” said Head Coach Laura Burnett-Kurie. “It was a tough, gritty battle and despite our efforts we weren’t able to get the result we wanted.” 

A goal at the 101 minute mark of double overtime by Arendje Louter served as the game-winning goal for Hamline. Louter tallies her ninth goal and third gamer-winner of the season as the Pipers improve their record to 11-6-1 (5-5-1 (MIAC).

In an even matched game, the Gusties and the Pipers both notched seven shots on goal. Gustavus led in total shots, 15-11. They also led in corner kicks, 7-3.

Maddison Ackiss (Sr., Fairbanks, Alaska) led the Gusties with seven shots and a season-high five of them on target.

Goalkeeper Ashley Becker (So., Farmington, Minn.) made six saves in goal despite suffering her sixth loss of the season.

“It’s disappointing but at the end of the day, the team put us in a position where we had clinched playoffs regardless of the result. We are still playing well and looking forward to our quarterfinals on Tuesday,” Burnett-Kurie said.

The Gusties travel back to St. Paul, Minn. on Tuesday to take on St. Catherine University at 2 p.m. for a MIAC Playoff quarterfinal matchup.
