DII women's soccer: Colorado Springs stuns No. 6 Colorado Mines in overtime
GOLDEN, Colo. – The University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team picked up a thrilling overtime win on Friday night, defeating No. 6 Colorado Mines on the road, 2-1.
The Mountain Lions, who trailed 1-0 after a 36th minute goal by Colorado Mines' Giselle Sawaged, evened the score four minutes later with a goal from Bailee Jameson, her fourth of the season.
After a scoreless second half, UCCS found the game-winner two minutes into overtime when Tarah Patterson sent her shot from the left side of the box to the back of the net. The goal was also Patterson's fourth of the season.
UCCS survived an offensive onslaught from the Orediggers who outshot the visitors 24 to 7, but placed just eight shots on goal.
Taylor Proctor earned her seventh win of the season in goal after being credited with seven saves.
The win marks the first time UCCS has defeated a nationally ranked opponent since the 2015 season when the Mountain Lions edged Texas A&M-Commerce, 1-0.
UCCS improved to 8-3-0 overall and 6-1-0 in the RMAC as they look to extend their four-game winning streak this Sunday when they visit Colorado Christian at noon.
