SPOKANE, Wash. – (Sept. 24) Seattle University women’s soccer fell, 2-1 in double overtime, at Gonzaga Sunday afternoon. Jennifer Plummer scored late in the first half for the Redhawks.
“It was good to see us respond to their early goal and tie it,” said Coach Julie Woodward. “It was a great shot by Jenny. This has been a challenging, competitive weekend for us and I’m confident it will help prepare us for conference play.”
The Zags (8-1-1) scored in the second minute to take charge of the contest. SU (4-5-1) worked to tie the game as the first half continued. Plummer evened the score with her third goal of the year in the 40th minute. She dribbled in on the right side and chipped a shot to the far post, beating the Zag goalkeeper at 39:20.
The teams worked for a go-ahead goal, but Mackenzie Curry did her best to keep the Redhawks tied. The SU goalie finished with seven saves, including a pair of stops in the 84th to force extra time.
In the first OT, Holly Rothering put a shot on goal, but Gonzaga was there to make the stop. At the 101:23 mark, Callie Best found the back of the net to give GU a 2-1 victory.
Seattle U continues its four-game road trip with its final non-conference match of the regular season. It will play at Utah Valley on Saturday, Sept. 30, at 6 p.m.
