Aug. 27, 2006

Malibu, Calif. - With a 1-0 deficit in the second period, the No. 20 Pepperdine women's soccer team forced Cal Poly into overtime with a late goal from Lindsey Redlin, but was defeated, 2-1, in the first overtime period on Sunday afternoon at the Sports Complex in San Luis Obispo, Calif. Pepperdine moved to 1-1-0 on the season, while Cal Poly improved to 1-1-0 on the season.

The defense played a huge role in the match as both teams held scoreless for more than 70 minutes. With a pass from Carrie Andrews, Kelsey Carroll put the Mustangs on the board at the 73:39 mark, giving Cal Poly the one-goal lead.

At the 83:54 mark, senior forward Lindsey Redlin scored the equalizer off a cross from sophomore Emily Wynne, shooting the ball into the left side of the net past Mustang goalie Alli Tramel.

Cal Poly captured the win when Jessica Rodriquez scored the game-winning goal off of a corner kick at the 93:48 mark to give the Mustangs the 2-1 victory in the first overtime period.

Despite the loss, the Waves out shot Cal Poly 14-7, including nine shots on goal, while Pepperdine goalkeeper Kayla Stolte recorded three saves in the match.

"I thought our team played great today," said head coach Tim Ward. "We really learned a lot about being the dominate team, but still allowing our opponent to stay in the match. I'm really proud of the way everyone played."

The Waves are back in action on Friday, September 1 when they host Dayton, Ohio State and San Diego in the Puma Classic. Pepperdine faces Dayton at 3:30 p.m. at Tari Frahm Rokus Field in Malibu, Calif. Kicking off the day's action is San Diego and Ohio State, which meet in a 1 p.m. match.
