Davey Goal Lifts FHSU Women’s Soccer to 2OT Win

Down 0-2 after the first half, Fort Hays State University rallied to force double overtime and used a game-winner from Hailey Davey to knock off Newman, 3-2, on Sunday afternoon.

FHSU (4-5-1, 0-2-1 MIAA) had 24 shots in the game, over-powering the Jets (2-4), who had just six.

Davey’s third goal of the season came in double overtime at 107:04, and was assisted by Dani Harris, who had her third goal of the season earlier in the game.  Ceynada Guzman had FHSU’s other score in the contest.

Nicole Barnaba started the game at goalie for the Tigers, allowing two goals. Kelsey Grey replaced Barnaba at half, notching two saves in the final 68 minutes.

The Jets scored first, when Mei-Mei Senthavy broke through the FHSU defense on NU’s first shot of the contest for a 1-0 lead.  Maricela Ruvalcaba would assist on the goal.

Later in the first half, NU stretched its lead to two, as Blair Terry’s free kick rebounded back to Olivia Hull, who scored.

FHSU would pull within one during the 62nd minute, when a Newman foul inside the box gave FHSU a penalty kick.  Harris nailed the PK for her third goal of the year.

Guzman’s shot with less than five minutes to go in regulation would erase the deficit completely.  The redshirt sophomore would fire a shot from the top of the box at 85:45, tying the match and eventually forcing overtime.

In the second extra-period, Harris found Davey in front of the goal for the win.

The Tigers start a three-game road swing through the MIAA next weekend, starting with Washburn on Friday, Oct. 8 at 4 p.m.
