LOGAN, Utah -
After scoring an equalizing goal in the 89th minute of play, Utah State battled Colorado College to a 1-1 double overtime draw, Friday.
Utah State moves to 6-5-2 overall and 1-3-1 in Mountain West play, while Colorado College sits at 4-5-4 on the year with a 1-2-2 league ledger.
The first half proved to be a very defensive battle on both sides, as each team took just two shots apiece. As the second half picked up though, both teams stepped up its offensive push, looking to do more on each possession.
Colorado College was first to score, getting on the board in the 72nd minute. A defensive breakdown by the Aggie backline lead the Tiger offense to find a whole and allowed Clara Richter to score. The Aggies fought hard, creating several good opportunities, but it took until the 89th minute to even the score. Junior midfielder Emma Clark scored the second goal of her career, rebounding a defensive play stopping freshman midfielder Ashley Cardozo and running through the Colorado College keeper to score.
Both overtime periods were dominated by the USU offense, as the Aggies fired off five shots in the 20-minute stretch. Throughout the match, Utah State was spurred by a season-high 12 corner kicks, but none of those opportunities found the right place to create a chance to score. The Aggies had two shots blocked in the final two minutes, while the match ended after a final corner kick from Cardozo.
On the day, Utah State took 12 shots to Colorado College's three, with a 7-3 on goal advantage. Senior goalkeeper Sara Cobb played the full 110 minutes, tallying two saves.
Utah State will conclude its season-long homestand on Sunday, Oct. 8, when it hosts Air Force in a 1 p.m. match.
