BOULDER, Colo. – For the second-straight game and third out of the last four, the Washington women’s soccer team played 90+ minutes on the road, picking up its first overtime and Pac-12 victory of 2012 with a 2-1 win at Colorado Friday afternoon. Photo gallery.
Washington improved to 8-2-1 and 1-1-0 in Pac-12 play while Colorado dropped its first game at home of the season, falling to 6-2-3 and 0-1-1.
Leading goal scorer Lindsay Elston, a junior from Sammamish, Wash., scored her fourth game-winning goal of the season just over 30 seconds into overtime to give the UW the victory. The goal was unassisted as Elston connected on the end of a long cross from Annie Sittauer.
“On Lindsay’s goal we went straight down the field, Elston crossed it, it came out back out she got it again on the end line and drove it home,” said head coach Lesle Gallimore. “She had it set in her mind we weren’t going to lose that game which was great.” Read the rest at GoHuskies.com.
