Women's Soccer Nips Shepherd in Double Overtime

Frostburg, Md. ... Sophomore Jackie Curry (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) made her first collegiate goal a memorable one, ripping a shot from the 18-yard box that deflected off a Shepherd defender and into the net with 4:30 left in the second overtime to give Frostburg State an exciting 1-0 win over the visiting Division II Rams Tuesday afternoon.

Curry dribbled from midfield through traffic before sending her shot toward the Shepherd net. The ball hit a Ram defender in the foot and found its way into the upper right corner of the goal.

Shepherd (0-2) was on the offensive for most of the first 10 minutes of the match before FSU pressured.

Junior Tiffany Parker's (Pasadena, Md./North East) attempt off a pass from senior Amy Foote (Baltimore, Md./Patapsco) was stopped by Ram goalie Amy Ridgely, who made 13 saves on the day. Foote then came close on a header and a left-footer in a two-minute span.

Ridgely then made a nice kick save in the 27th minute and followed with a stop of another Foote shot with just over 15 minutes remaining in the first half.

Bobcat sophomore Stephanie Zych (Slingerlands, N.Y./Guilderland) was just as solid, diving to her right on a close-range roller in the 33rd minute to keep Shepherd off the board. She finished with nine saves in recording her third straight shutout.

FSU freshman Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./North East) was robbed off a sure goal when Ram sophomore Karen Hamilton headed a ball out of danger with Ridgely tied up in traffic out several yards in front of the net.

The second half featured a handful of other close calls for both sides. Shepherd sophomore Amanda Hartman's direct kick went wide right with 16:30 left in regulation, and FSU missed on a cross with just under five minutes to play. The Rams then held off more Bobcat pressure in the final two minutes to send the contest into the second extra session.

Frostburg State (3-0) had two solid chances near the end of the first overtime, but Ridgely punched away a corner kick attempt with 2:40 to go and Kotofski's left-footer was wide right at the 1:28 mark.

The Bobcats return to action on Thursday, when they host Bethany (W.Va.) for a 4:30 p.m. match.
