Freshman Truesdale scores twice as Loras upset No. 2 Trinity (Texas)
WHEATON, Ill. -- The Tiger women's soccer team suffered its first loss of the 2012 season in a 3-2 double-overtime defeat against Loras College on Sunday afternoon.
Trinity fell to 8-1-2 on the season, losing its first regular season contest in the last 45 games - a streak that dates back to the second game of the 2010 season. The Tigers still hold a significant home winning streak, though, having not lost in the last 42 games played at Trinity (including the postseason).
In Sunday's game, the Tigers fell behind early as Loras pushed in a goal after just 70 seconds of play. Loras then went up 2-0 midway through the first period, a lead that held to halftime.
In the second half, Trinity was finally able to find the back of the net in the 57th minute, as Stephanie Segovia scored her ninth goal of the 2012 campaign. In the 70th minute, Shelby Guenthardt scored the equalizer, which eventually sent the game into overtime. Kelsey Falcone and Emily Jorgens assisted on the goals.
In the opening overtime period, the Tigers held a 4-0 advantage in shots -- including three shots on goal. Loras goalkeepers had to make 10 total saves in the game - four of which came in extra time.
With less than three minutes remaining in double-overtime, Loras was awarded a penalty kick, which was converted by Katie Truesdale for the game-winner. It was the second goal of the day for Truesdale.
Trinity GK Katie Garrett recorded six saves, just one game removed from a 21-save performance in a 1-1 tie against Wheaton (IL) on Friday. Trinity held a 21-10 lead in shots taken for the game, as well as a 7-4 edge in corner kicks.
