Perfect OT header gives New Mexico St. dramatic victory

  Alexandria Otero and Audriana Chavez couldn't have connected any better.

New Mexico State took 27 shots in Monday night's match against Arizona Christian, but they saved their absolute best for last.

Junior forward Audriana Chavez took a perfect cross into the box from fellow junior Alexandria Otero and, in one perfect motion, connected on a header sending the ball into the upper lefthand corner to give the Aggies a 3-2 win in OT. 

Seriously, if you were setting up a perfect game-ending play, it'd be hard to draw up something better than this:

The teamwork, between Otero curving her cross just barely around an oncoming defender, to Chavez boxing out her marker and positioning herself exactly right, was a sight to behold.

It was a nice slice of redemption for Chavez, too, after she had a second-half goal, which would have proven to be the winner, disallowed because of an offsides call.
