Women’s Soccer Falls in Overtime to Carleton Posted on October 19th, 2019 by


SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team played host to Carleton on Saturday and fell in overtime by a score of 1-0. With the loss the Gusties fall to 3-11 overall and 2-6 in the conference, while the Knights improve to 8-2-3 overall and 5-1-2 in the MIAC.

The Knights controlled the contest early on, possessing the ball in their half for a large majority of the game. The two teams played scoreless for the first 90 before Carleton broke the ice in the first overtime period for the game winning goal. The Knights were awarded a penalty kick and Ashley Becker (Sr., Farmington), who made nine saves in the loss, dove the right way on the try but the ball went just passed her outstretched arms on the left side of the net for the Carleton victory.

The Knights outshot Gustavus in the contest 15-0 and had five corners to just two for the Gusties.

Gustavus will next be in action tomorrow when they host UM-Morris for a 1 p.m. contest.
