Women's Soccer Falls to Richmond, 2-1 in OT
Oct. 4, 2002
The Dukes saw their five-match winning streak snapped in overtime at Richmond in the Atlantic 10 opener Friday night in Virginia. The Spiders improve to 5-2-2, 2-0-0 A-10 while the Dukes are now 5-5-0, 1-1-0 A-10.
The Spiders freshman Annette Isham netted two goals, including the game-winner in the first overtime, to lead Richmond to a 2-1 A10 victory over Duquesne on Friday evening at First Market Stadium.
The Spiders got on the board early in the contest when a streaking Isham easily beat her defender for a one-on-one showdown with Dukes goalkeeper Kristin Scharphorn. Scharphorn came out of the box and got her glove on Isham's first attempt. However, she tipped the ball directly to Isham who shot the ball into the empty net.
Duquense evened the score in the 25th minute when a scramble in front of the net resulted in the Dukes first goal of the evening. Freshman Katie Hensel (Baldwinsville, N.Y. / C.W. Baker) knocked in the loose ball with an assist credited to Katie Schwager.
Hensel was seeing her second action on the season and now has five points on two goals and one assist.
Richmond out-shot Duquesne, 12-1 in the second stanza but failed to find the back of the net until the extra period. In the 95th minute, Isham lined up from 15 yards out, drilling a bullet into the upper left corner of the box.
Duquesne next heads to our nation's capital where they will face the George Washington Colonials (4-5-0, 1-1-0 A-10) on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at GW's Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
