Women's Soccer Captures OT Win Over Anderson

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology rallied from an early deficit and captured a 2-1 overtime victory over Anderson University late Wednesday night at the Engineer Intramural Field.

Anderson jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a goal by Katie Frazer in the 48th minute, then held the lead through the 54th minute when a thunderstorm halted play.  Following an hour delay, Rose-Hulman rallied with two dramatic goals for the victory.

Freshman Jessica Wells knotted the score at 1-1 with just under three minutes remaining on a score in the box, courtesy of a pass from Samantha Jacobs.

Seven minutes into overtime the same duo struck again.  Melissa Rivera passed a ball into the box that was deflected on to the foot of Wells for the game winning score.

Rose-Hulman controlled play for much of the contest, outshooting Anderson 19-7 and 5-0 in overtime.  Wells had a match-high seven shots, and Eliska Saiz contributed three shots to the performance.

The goalkeeping duo of Carli Weinberg and Chiarra Franklin combined for the victory.  Franklin recorded two saves in the second half and overtime period.

Rose-Hulman improved to 9-5 overall and 3-1 in HCAC play, while Anderson dropped to 6-4-2 and 1-3 in league matches.  The Fightin' Engineers return to action at Defiance College on Saturday.
