Sept. 10, 2006

Final Stats

Neither team could score in two overtime periods as the Eastern Washington University women's soccer team tied the Nevada Wolfpack 1-1 Sunday (Sept. 10) at the EWU Sports and Recreation Center in Cheney, Wash.

Eastern is now 1-4-1 on the season while the Wolfpack remained unbeaten at 4-0-1. Nevada defeated Washington State 2-1 last Friday (Sept. 8) in Pullman.

Eastern got on the board first with a minute left in the first half on a goal by forward Shelly Ikerd, which was strangely assisted by EWU goalkeeper Tiera Como. Como kicked the ball downfield via a goal kick, and Nevada never gained possession. Ikerd, a transfer from Walla Walla Community College, then scored the goal, allowing Como to get a rare assist from the goalkeeper position.

Nevada followed Eastern's goal early in the second half on a penalty kick by Miranda Montejo. Otherwise, Como held the Wolfpack scoreless as she registered nine saves.

Como, a 2002 graduate of Spokane's East Valley High School, now has 325 career saves. She is just 25 behind the school record of 350 set by Katie Grothkopp from 1999-2002.

The Eagles out-shot Nevada 19-13, including a 5-1 advantage in the two 10-minute overtime periods combined.

Next up for EWU is a trip down to Southern California for a match against the Trojans of USC on Sept. 15 at 3 p.m. Pacific time. Southern California is currently ranked No. 17 in the Soccer Times Top 25, and have a record of 4-1-1.
