Utah Gets Three Straight Goals to Edge UW Women
Sept. 22, 2007
SALT LAKE CITY - Katy Reineke scored two goals and assisted on the game-winner in the 82nd minute Saturday as the Utah women's soccer team tallied three consecutive goals en route to a 3-2 win over Washington at Ute Field.
The Huskies' record dropped to 2-6 while Utah improved to 5-2-1.
Washington scored at 10:36 with the first shot of the game. Sophomore Veronica Perez-Murillo (San Mateo, Calif.) served a corner kick that skipped to sophomore defender Nikki Murray (Des Moines, Wash./Mt. Rainer) who directed it into the upper left corner. That was the first collegiate goal for Murray, an All-Pac-10 Freshman Team selection last year.
The Utes attempted the next five shots and the first two were saved by UW sophomore goalkeeper Taylor Carr (Culver City, Calif.).
Freshman McKenna Waitley (El Cajon, Calif.) gave the Huskies a 2-0 lead early in the second half on another goal assisted by Perez-Murillo. Waitley drove a 15-yard shot through the hands of goalkeeper Lynzee Lee at 57:08. Waitley's second goal of the season came on UW's final shot of the game.
Utah scored its first goal at 61:02 as Reineke placed a 35-yard free kick into the top right corner.
She found the back of the net again with the equalizer at 64:46. Reineke's 10-yard shot, assisted by Adele Letro and Lauren Hair, deflected off Carr's hands.
Letro netted the decisive goal at 81:58. She dribbled past a UW defender and beat Carr with a point-blank shot for her ninth goal of the season. Reineke and Jen Christoffers set up the game-winning tally.
Carr registered six saves for the Huskies, who were out shot by a 15-9 margin. Lee had three saves for Utah.
The Washington women remain in Utah to play 16th-ranked Brigham Young, Monday, Sept. 24 in Provo.
The Huskies' next home game is Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. against Eastern Washington.
