Women's Soccer Drops Heartbreaker to Norse

Oct. 7, 2012

Storm Lake, Iowa

Trailing 2-0, the Buena Vista women's soccer team battled back with second-half goals from Tori Carson and Kellyn Arnold to send the game into overtime, but it was Luther College getting a goal midway through the first extra frame to edge the Beavers, 3-2.

Luther held a 7-1 shot advantage in the first half, and took a 1-0 lead into the half after a goal midway through the opening period.

The Norse then came out of halftime and made it a 2-0 game less than a minute into the second half.  The Beavers weren't about to be outdone, though, using a 9-6 shot advantage over the final 45 minutes.  Carson got BVU on the board in the 75th minute with her 15th goal of the year off a feed from Arnold.  Six minutes later, the two players reversed roles with Arnold tallying her team-leading 18th goal of the year.

Luther (5-6-1, 1-2 IIAC) then got a shot from 40-plus yards out midway through the first overtime period to end the match.

Buena Vista falls to 9-4-1 overall (0-3 IIAC).  Two of the team's three conference defeats this season have come in overtime.

The team returns to the field on Tuesday evening for a 5:30pm contest at 18th-ranked Wartburg College (9-1-2, 3-0 IIAC).
