Beavers Top Seattle U 2-1 to Wrap Up Exhibition Slate
CORVALLIS – The Oregon State women's soccer team defeated Seattle U 2-1 Friday evening at Lorenz Field, as the Beavers wrapped up their two-game exhibition slate.
Emma Deane scored the winning goal on a first-half corner kick. The Beavers' first tally of the day came via a Seattle U own-goal early in the match.
Overall, Oregon State led the shot count 15-8 and had three corner kicks in the match. The OSU win comes a week after the Beavers opened their preseason slate with a 4-1 exhibition win over Trinity Western.
Oregon State took an early lead as Seattle U re-directed a Beaver cross into its own net to put OSU in front within the first seven minutes of action. The Redhawks leveled the score in the 18th minute, converting a header off a set-piece.
The Beavers retook the lead in the 30th minute, as Emma Deane took a corner kick that made its way through a number of players and into the net. Oregon State entered the break leading 2-1.
Lindsey Antonson nearly added a third Beaver goal, but her effort from a tight angle was saved. Antonson rattled the crossbar in the 83rd, as Oregon State controlled the bulk of the possession in the second half to secure the victory.
The Beavers will open the regular season Thursday when Eastern Washington visits Lorenz Field.
