Liddiard Leads Women's Soccer Past CUW 2-1

MEQUON, Wisconsin – Senior Caitlin Liddiard scored two goals, including the game-winner just 82 seconds into overtime, to lead the MSOE women's soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Concordia Wisconsin Saturday afternoon at Fitting Field.

The Raiders (5-2, 2-0 NACC) overcame an early 1-0 deficit behind Liddiard's equalizer, then knocked off the Falcons (1-6-1, 1-1 NACC) quickly in the first overtime period.

Kayla Schlosser put the home side ahead in just the 13th minute, running onto a ball played over the defense. She then chipped the keeper for a 1-0 lead.

Conceding first did not faze, MSOE, which is now 3-1 when allowing the first goal this season. Liddiard notched her first goal of the match in the 25th minute, blasting a shot from 25 yards out to even the score at 1-1.

The teams were deadlocked through the rest of the opening half, as well as a second frame which saw CUW forage an 8-3 shot advantage.

In overtime, the Falcons earned a quick corner kick, but the Raiders snuffed out the scoring opportunity and broke the other way for a quick goal. Junior Melina Lynn played Liddiard through, creating a 1v1 chance that the Waukesha native dutifully finished.

Shots went 13-7 in favor of Concordia and the home team both of the matches two corner kicks.

Junior Mary McFee was up to the challenge, picking up her fifth win of the season with five saves on the day. Ariana Worthing made three saves for CUW.

The Raiders have a busy week coming up with four matches in six days. The run starts Tuesday at Maranatha.
