HOUSTON – The HBU women’s soccer team took a 1-0 lead early in the second half after freshman Kat Lazor found the net off the right post but an equalizer by visiting Texas State with just over two minutes left in regulation brought the match even with the contest ending tied after two overtime periods on Sunday evening at Sorrels Field.
HBU (0-0-1) earned an early corner in the first minute and just over a minute in Talin Rizo put a shot on target but Texas State (0-1-1) goalkeeper Beth Agee came up with the stop. The Bobcats’ Mackenzie Smith gave Husky keeper Karla Ramirez her first action in the eighth minute but Ramirez kept things even at 0-0. The Huskies put three of five attempts on goal in the first half while two of Texas State’s four shots were on target.
The Huskies came out on the offensive in the second half with Mia Salas and Noor Abukishk both attempting shots in the 49th minute while Abukishk’s shot was blocked and led to an HBU corner kick. Senior Tayah Reynolds dropped a ball in front of the goal and found Lazor who directed her header off the inside of the far post and into the net for a 1-0 HBU advantage.
Just a few minutes later, Abukishk, Avery Cortez and Ryan Ford all tested Agee in hopes of extending the Husky lead but through 55 minutes the score remained 1-0. With just over two minutes to go, Texas State’s Haley Shaw found Alana Clark with a cross to set Clark up for the tying goal, sending things to overtime.
In the two overtime periods, the Huskies attempted a pair of shots with one on goal while the Bobcats’ one attempt was off target.
Ramirez finished the match with a pair of saves while Agee made nine stops. The Huskies held a 15-10 advantage in shots and earned nine corner kicks to the Bobcats’ six.
Sunday’s game was the lone game on the Huskies’ Fall schedule.
