Trinity Women’s Soccer Edges Puget Sound in Second Overtime

San Antonio - The 12th-ranked Trinity women's soccer team claimed a 1-0 double-overtime victory over the University of Puget Sound (WA) Sunday afternoon.

GAME SUMMARY

Chelsea Cole broke a scoreless tie in the 102nd minute of action to win the game, on an assist from Katie Peth.

Trinity had three shots on goal in the first 16 minutes of action and six total shots on the mark in the first half, but the game was still a scoreless draw at the half. Puget Sound also had a good chance at a goal early in the first half, but it bounced off the crossbar in the 19th minute.

In the 58th minute, Trinity's Emily Welp drew a foul in the box to set up a penalty kick, and it looked like the game's first score was on its way. Cole's PK attempt was saved, though, and the teams remained scoreless.

Peth had a long-range shot that was saved and hit off the crossbar in the second half, but the game still went to overtime despite seven shots on target by the Tigers in the second half.

The only shot of either overtime period was the game-winner by Cole.
