RENO, Nev. - Senior forward Chanel Weddle scored her ninth career goal, but Nevada scored 52 seconds into the second overtime to down the Aggies, 2-1, in Western Athletic Conference soccer action here Friday night. Weddle is now tied with Charity Weston for eighth on the USU career goals list.
"It's always hard to play on the road," said head coach Heather Cairns. "Nevada is a tough place to play due to the size of the field and we were just unable to pull it off. It was a very back-and-forth match and we weren't able to capitalize on our chances as well as they were."
The game-winning goal came on a corner kick, when it seemed Utah State goalkeeper Kelli Allred had corralled the initial cross from UNR's Jessica Thompson. During the shuffle of play in the box, Nevada's Randee Robinson was able to knock the ball free from Allred's grasp and into the Aggie goal.
"We felt like Kelli had possession of the ball," Cairns said. "But one of their players was able to disposses her and poke it in."
Upon questioning the call, Utah State assistant coach Brent Anderson was given a red card and will be unable to sit on the bench during USU's match at Fresno State on Sunday.
For the 10th time this season Utah State found itself trying to come from behind as UNR's Lauren Kinneman put the Wolf Pack on the board first with a goal at 41:32. Thompson was also credited with the assist on that goal.
After going into the intermission down by a goal, Weddle evened the score in the 52nd minute as she beat UNR's Megan Tarpenning for her second goal of the year.
Allred was credited with the loss as her season record fell to 2-6-2 in the 12 matches she has appeared in.
The Aggies continue their two-game road swing with a match at Fresno State on Sunday at 1 p.m.
