CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Virginia Women’s Soccer player Lori Lindsey headed home the game-winning goal 6:19 into the first overtime period to propel the 15th-ranked Cavaliers to a 3-2 victory over visiting Brigham Young Thursday night (October 4) at Kl?ckner Stadium. UVa moved to 6-2-1 with the win, while the Cougars fell to 6-3-1.
The fact that the two teams have never played each other before was evident at the start of the game, as both sides seemed to feel the other out. BYU managed just three first-half shots, while Virginia had only two shots at the intermission. Nevertheless, the score was tied at the half as Lindsey capitalized on UVa’s first shot of the game, slotting home a pass from Erin Engelhardt in the 18th minute. The Cougars answered in the 33rd minute when Kim Devine scored an unassisted goal to tie the game.
The second half was much more wide open than the first. BYU generated five shots to Virginia’s seven. The Cougars took a 2-1 lead in the 62nd minute when Divine scored her second goal of the game. UVa responded with a goal in the 81st minute of play from freshman Lindsay Gusick, which sent the game into overtime.
At the 96:19 mark of the contest, Engelhardt served a ball to Lindsey’s head, which she powered past Cougars goalkeeper Jennifer Waldron and into the back of the net. It was Lindsey’s second goal of the game and seventh goal of the season.
Virginia returns to action on Sunday, October 7, when the Cavaliers travel to George Mason. UVa returns to Charlottesville next week for a Wednesday night (October 10) game against Maryland.
