Women's Soccer Stung in OT at UW-Oshkosh

OSHKOSH, Wisconsin - Mallory Knight scored the golden goal just 55 seconds into overtime to propel UW-Oshkosh past the MSOE women's soccer team 2-1 Sunday afternoon at J.J. Keller Field.

The Raiders (1-4) opened the game's scoring less than two minutes into the second half but saw the Titans (2-1-1) equalized in the 75th minute and escape with the victory on the second day of the UW-Oshkosh Invitational.

Junior Jeray Riffel scored her second goal of the second for MSOE, which has now scored first in four of its five games played this season. She struck for the score just 84 seconds after halftime, hitting a shot from 15 yards out with an assist by freshman Jill Ruark.

Oshkosh pulled even in the 75th minute to, essentially, force overtime. Then, Knight converted a Delaney Karl pass from five yards out to give the home side the victory.

The Raiders' defense was on display for much of the game, as UWO held a decisive 17-4 shot advantage and forced four more corner kicks (7-3). The Red & White put a pair of shots on goal while junior Abbie Lorenz made five saves in going the distance in goal.

MSOE returns to the field Thursday, hosting Lake Forest at Viets Field at 7 p.m.
