Soccer Falls to Northwestern in Overtime
Sept. 12, 2004
EVANSTON, Ill. -
The Southeast Missouri State women's soccer team could not generate any offense as they fell to Big Ten opponent Northwestern, 1-0 in overtime. Southeast (3-2, 0-0 OVC) only managed two shots, none on goal in a game that featured little on offense from both teams.
Northwestern (4-2, 0-0 Big ten) out-shot Southeast 17-2 and 9-0 in shots on goal. Southeast goalkeeper Amanda Wrzos had an excellent game in regulation spoiled in the fifth minute of overtime.
After a mad scramble from a Wildcat corner kick, the loose ball bounced to Carolyn Hack who beat Wrzos with a shot into the right corner. The goal was unassisted.
Northwestern attempted eight corner kicks versus none for Southeast.
Freshman Margie Schaeffler had the only two shots for Southeast as they were held in check by the smothering Wildcat defense.
Wrzos made school history for Southeast with her stellar performance. Her seven saves moved her pass assistant coach Beth Guccione for first on the school's all-time list for career saves with 160 career saves.
Next for Southeast is a non-conference match-up with Air Force in St. Louis on Friday, September 17. The game is part of the Toys for Tots Tournament and the start time is 5:00 p.m. at Robert R. Hermann Stadium.
