Oct. 20, 2000
EUGENE, Ore. - The fifth Civil War between the Oregon and Oregon State women's soccer teams proved to be an epic battle, ending in a 2-2 tie after two overtimes Friday afternoon at a wet Pape' Field before 842 fans.
The Ducks (4-11-1, 1-3-1 Pac-10) led 2-1 on Crystal David's unassisted goal, her fourth on the year, from 25 yards out in the 53rd minute. However, the Beavers (6-9-2, 0-3-2) evened the score with a goal from Courtney Carter in the 80th minute on an assist from Allison Hamada.
Oregon freshman Ann Westermark notched her first goal since the season-opener, punching it in from five yards out on an assist from Marie Selby to give Oregon an early 1-0 lead in the 10th minute. Oregon State's Katie Henderson responded in the 52nd minute with a goal assisted by BreeAnna Jolin.
'The lesson we learned is we need to play 90 minutes,' fifth-year Oregon coach Bill Steffen said. 'We started off well, but got complacent once we scored. It's a credit to Oregon State that they played hard when they needed to.'
Westermark led Oregon with a career-high six shots while Julie McLellan had five and Chalise Baysa four. For Oregon State, Carter and Morgan Crabtree each led the team with five shots. The Ducks had a team-record 29 shots while Oregon State finished with 22.
The Beavers are now 0-4-1 against the Ducks in the series history.
The Ducks next play host Friday to Washington State at Pape' Field in Eugene. The match begins at 3 p.m.
