Trinity Beaten in Double-Overtime in Third Round Playoff Game
Ithaca, N.Y. - The Trinity Tiger women's soccer team lost its NCAA Division III Third Round Playoff game 1-0 in double-overtime against Ithaca College on Saturday afternoon.
Trinity concluded the season with a 22-1-0 record, experiencing its first loss of the year. The 22 victories also set a school record for wins in a season. The Bombers improved to 14-3-3.
Ithaca's Jackie Rodabaugh scored 1:18 into the second OT period, as the Bombers advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the fourth time in five years.
Rodabaugh's teammate, Ellyn Grant-Keane, centered a pass toward the near post, when Tiger goalkeeper Devan Osegueda got a hand on the ball. The ball was initially stopped, before the "gï»¿olden goal" was made.
Osegueda recorded a Tigers season-best eight saves in the round of 16 match-up. She made three saves in the first half, and five after the intermission. Trinity had allowed only seven goals all year.
Trinity led Ithaca 25-18 in total shots, and the teams were even at nine each, in shots on the mark. Abby Loar and Emily Jorgens each made three shots on goal for the Tigers.
The Tigers competed in their 17th NCAA Tournament, and the sixth under eighth-year head coach Lance Key. Trinity qualified for the postseason event by winning the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship. Last week, the Tigers hosted two playoff games, beating St. Scholastica 5-2, and defending NCAA champion Hardin-Simmons 3-1.
