DeKalb, Ill. - Friday's Women's Soccer match looked to end just as it had started nearly 110 minutes earlier, with a 0-0 draw. But Kent State made sure that didn't happen.
A late goal by midfielder Catharine Marosszeky propelled the Golden Flashes to victory. The loss today dropped NIU to 4-3-2 on the season and 1-2 in the MAC and improved Kent State to 3-5-1.
With only 39 seconds left in the second overtime of the match the Kent State sophomore put the game away. Marosszeky, assisted by Lisa Kurnz, shot from just inside the box, her shot deflected off an NIU defender and wound up in the back of the net for the match's lone goal.
The Huskies out shot the Golden Flashes seven to three in regulation but couldn't find the net. The Huskies lone shot on goal came in the second half off the boot of midfielder Lisa Maier (Orland Park, Ill./Sandburg).
A prime scoring chance for NIU was denied when freshman Becca Ford (DeKalb, Ill./DeKalb) was called offside.
The Huskies are back in action in the MAC Sunday morning with an 11 a.m. match-up with the Buffalo Bulls.
