Overtime Goal Sinks Northridge

October 03, 1998

The Cal State Northridge women's soccer team was competitive with nationally ranked San Diego State on Friday before losing, 1-0, on an overtime goal in the nonconference match at San Diego.

The winning shot came when the Aztecs took quick advantage of a foul called six minutes into overtime on Northridge defender Pam Karbowski, who was injured on the play. Matador Coach Brian Wiesner said as Karbowski's teammates moved to assist her, San Diego State's Kaycee McClure dribbled in alone on Northridge goalkeeper Tawni Takagi and scored.

"We played a great game but we just couldn't finish it up," Wiesner said.

Tenth-ranked San Diego State (8-1) held an 18-6 shot advantage. The Matadors (2-8) have lost 18 of their last 21 games dating back to the 1997 season.

Colorado College 1, Pepperdine 0--Mary Everett scored in the 13th minute of the nonconference game at Colorado Springs.

Everett converted after taking a pass from Kasey Clark. Pepperdine (4-5-1) was outshot, 17-12, by Colorado College (6-4).

Ventura 2, Cuesta 0--Chrissy Sanford scored in the ninth minute off an assist from Ellie Pillsbury and in the 58th minute on a free kick to lift the Pirates (9-0-2, 7-0) to a Western State Conference victory over host Cuesta (7-3-1, 3-3-1).
