Miscue gives Moorhead tourney win
Cobbers take victory in overtime following Banana Slug error
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- An overtime defensive miscue by UC-Santa Cruz provided a premium scoring opportunity for Concordia-Moorhead. The Cobbers took advantage for the 2-1 victory in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
In the 98th minute, Sarah Rounds stole possession from the Banana Slugs' central defender and raced toward goal for a one-on-one with the keeper. From about 15 yards out, she placed a shot low and to the right, outside the reach of goalkeeper Monica Chazen for the game winner.
Rounds assisted on the game's opening goal serving a cross in to teammate Laura Prosinski. Her header inside the penalty area went over the hands of Chazen giving Concordia what would be a short-lived advantage.
Within one minute of conceding a goal UC-Santa Cruz replied off a set piece. From the right corner of the 18-yard box Chay Thomas' well-driven cross was redirected by teammate Antonia Darragh for the equalizer.
Chazen for UCSC and Ali Nelson for the Cobbers each made five saves in goal for their respective clubs.
