Eastern Defeats Utah State 2-1
Sept. 23, 2007
"We played really well the first 15 minutes of the game," said head coach George Hageage. "We match up real well with them. We used the outside midfielders a lot and started to attack."
The lone first half goal came in the ninth minute by Utah State's Lauren Hansen with the assist coming from Kiersten Nilsson.
Eastern (3-3-0) struck back in the second half with a goal by O'Friel in the 50th minute, which was the first goal of her career, assisted by junior Lauren Koelzer. The second goal came in the 55th minute by Bourret for the game-winning goal to beat the Aggies (3-6-0).
Eastern tallied 20 shots to Utah State's 18.
The Eagles will hit the road to play the University of Washington Friday (Sept. 28).
