Snyder’s First Career Goal Lifts Ducks

Sep 1, 2022

EUGENE, Ore. – Senior Jordan Snyder scored the first goal of her career in the 78th minute as Oregon rallied for a 1-1 draw with Texas Thursday night in front of 493 at Papé Field.
 
"We played disciplined," said head coach Graeme Abel. "To be a disciplined unit like that and then to create those chances, that's a good team performance."
 
How it Happened: Texas (2-1-1) scored in the 20th minute on a deflected ball in the Ducks' end and outshot Oregon 11-1 in the first half. But the Ducks (1-0-3) turned the tables after halftime, sending five shots at the Longhorns' net.
 
Oregon's patience was rewarded with Snyder's equalizer. Freshman Ainsley Fink, making her first appearance as a Duck, collected the ball on the right side near midfield. She then chipped the ball 20 yards up the middle to Zoe Hasenauer who settled the ball at her feet with a perfect chest trap. Hasenauer pivoted and split the Longhorn defense with a one-hopper that Snyder punched past Texas goalkeeper Savannah Madden from 10 yards out.

 
"It started with the back line, and then Zoe got it, and she played a perfect ball to me," said Snyder. "Zoe is an amazing player, so I knew she was going to give me a perfect ball and all I had to do was put it in the back of the net. So, I give all the credit to Zoe and the team."
 
Leah Freeman made six saves in goal for the Ducks.
 
What It Means: Oregon's third consecutive tie matched a school record set Sept. 12-26, 2013. Oregon is unbeaten in its last five matches dating back to last season.
 
Quotable
Head Coach Graeme Abel at halftime:
"This goes one of two ways. We're either going to go down 2-0 here, or we're going to come back and have opportunities to win it as well."

 
Notable: With her 17th career assist Thursday, Hasenauer moved to with one of the school record of 18, held by Jen Stoltenberg (2007-10). Hasenauer entered the UO career top 10 in matches played. Thursday was her 77th appearance as a Duck, which is tied for 10th with Nicole Dobrzynski (2005-08). Hasenauer also started her 75 match at Oregon on Thursday, which is tied for seventh with Erin Anderson (1996-99) and Amanda Fox (1996-99). … In addition to Fink, freshman Caitlyn McCulloch also saw her first cap as a Duck. … Alice Barbieri matched her career high with three shot attempts. … The Ducks played their fourth consecutive match without returning starters Kess Elmore, Caitlin Shaw and Croix Soto, while three players who started games earlier this season – True Dydasco, Callan Harrington and Bel Rolley – were also unavailable Thursday.
