Loss Ends ORUís Season, 2-1
The Golden Eagles conclude their 2010 season with a 9-8-1 overall record and a 4-4-1 Summit League ledger.
ORU jumped out to an early 1-0 lead when sophomore Whitney Booth scored her second goal of the season in the 33rd minute. Senior Tiffany Heward provided the assist.
The lead stood until the first minute of the second half. North Dakota State’s (11-5-4, 6-2-1) Quin Ryan tied the game in the 46th minute with her fifth goal of the season with an assist by Melissa Wolfgram.
With the game tied at 1-1, the Bison benefitted from a foul call in the box against the Golden Eagles in the 64th minute. After not receiving an explanation as to who committed the foul, ORU head coach Ryan Bush objected to the point that he was eventually red-carded by the lead official.
As a result of the foul call, Wolfgram attempted and converted a penalty kick for a 2-1 NDSU lead and the final margin.
Senior goalkeeper Amanda Wheeler made six saves for the Golden Eagles, while NDSU keeper Kalani Bertsch stopped two shots.
