Collegian: Women's Soccer Completes Comeback Win In Overtime

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Tom Mulherin has a recap of women's soccer's overtime win against Northeastern in today's Daily Collegian. The Minutewomen went 1-1-0 last week and will play their final non-conference match this Thursday at home vs. Bryant before opening up A-10 action at Saint Joseph's on Sunday.

The Massachusetts women's soccer team may be making a habit of overtime wins.

The Minutewomen picked up their third win in extra time in their last two contests with a 2-1 comeback victory over Northeastern at Rudd Field on Sunday.

The 1-1 match was broken just five minutes into overtime as forward Megan Burke took an overhead pass from Madison Smith and found the back of the net on a chip shot over the goalkeeper.

"Personally, I was just trying to get my body in front of [the ball]," Burke said on the play. "I was hoping to just get a touch, or anything. I got the touch and I guess the shot was perfect."
