UW Women Rally to Tie Loyola Marymount 1-1

Sept. 5, 2003

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Sophomore Kim Taylor scored with just over 11 minutes remaining in regulation Friday, evening the score for the 17th-ranked Washington women's soccer team which tied Loyola Marymount 1-1 at Colorado College's Stewart Field.

Washington (1-1-1) has now played extra time in all three games after going overtime twice at home last weekend. UW defeated then 18th-ranked Maryland 2-1 before falling to No. 1 North Carolina by the same 2-1 tally.

A NCAA Tournament team last year, Loyola Marymount (1-1-1) opened the scoring in the 60th minute. A Lion corner kick bounced around in front of the Husky net, but senior goalkeeper Lisa Brookens was unable to gain possession. Caroline Dugoni booted the ball in during the scramble in front of the goal mouth.

Taylor netted the equalizer 19 minutes later for her first goal of the season. She lofted an 18-yard shot from the top of the box into the upper left corner at 78:51. Taylor tied for team-high honors with eight goals as a red-shirt freshman in 2002.

Neither team found the back of the net during the final 11 minutes of regulation and the game was declared a tie after 20 scoreless overtime minutes.

'Overall, it was a fair result,' said UW coach Lesle Gallimore. 'Being down 1-0 and tying the game, then controlling the ball in overtime was a positive for us. The altitude is a shock to your system, but we adjusted and played better as the game went on.'

Brookens registered seven saves for the Huskies who were outshot 18-16. Loyola's Corey Yukihiro was also credited with seven saves. Three of Yukihiro's saves came during the overtime sessions, including a stop of Melissa Bennett's dangerous chance in the final minutes.

The Washington women remain on the road for three more games, including a contest Sunday at Colorado College. The Huskies travel to Portland, Ore. next weekend to compete in the Nike Invitational. They play against No. 20 Connecticut on Sept. 13 and Cal State Fullerton on Sept. 14.

'On the road for four games in a row we have to buckle down and get some results,' Gallimore concluded.
