SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse scored their second goal of the match in the second overtime to defeat the Providence College women's soccer team 2-1 in Syracuse, N.Y. on Friday, October 26. The Friars fall to 3-13-1 (2-8 BIG EAST) while the Orange improves to 7-7-4 (3-5-2 BIG EAST).
The first half was a defensive showdown as neither team would give up good looks at the goal. Syracuse outshot PC 5-3 in the first half.
The second half proved to be a different story when in the 62nd minute, sophomore Nicole Benko (Valley Stream, N.Y.) sent a pass to junior Victoria Neff (Fairfield, Conn.) who sprinted into the Syracuse box, beat a defender and put a shot into the back of the net to put the Friars up 1-0. Neff's goal was her first as a Friar while Benko notched her second assist of the season. The Orange answered in the 69th minute as Karrah Benson scored her fourth goal of the season on a penalty kick. The match continued to be a deadlock throughout the second half and at the end of regulation, the score remained 1-1.
In the second overtime, the Orange's Sara Grimsgaard sent a cross on goal that teammate Lauren Jentzen headed into the back of the net to give Syracuse the victory 2-1.
Syracuse ended the game outshooting the Friars 13-9. PC senior goalkeeper Laura Elfers (Deer Park, N.Y.) recorded two saves in the contest while SU goalkeeper Elizabeth Bennett-Hattan tallied three saves.
The Friars will conclude their 2007 season on Sunday, October 28 as they visit the St. John's Red Storm. The match will begin at 1:00 p.m.
