Appalachian State University women’s soccer (3-3-0) traveled to High Point (1-5-0) on Sunday for a match with the Panthers and fell by a score of 2-1 in two overtimes.
App State got started early with a goal from Samantha Childress in the 14th minute. Nicole Steyl crossed a ball into the box and Childress made a move on her defender putting one past starting Panther keeper Jess May to give the Apps a 1-0 advantage.
The Mountaineers would be outshot by one in the first half by a 5-4 tally, but three of the four shots were on target. Megan Roberson got the start in net for Sarah Strickland’s squad and did not have to make a save throughout the first 45 minutes.
App State would maintain their one goal advantage well into the second half. In the 84th minute High Point was awarded a penalty kick and Kelli Joline was able to convert for the Panthers and knot the score at 1-1. Six minutes would tick off the clock with no further scoring and the match would head to overtime.
No one would score in the first overtime period and the game would be sent to a second 10 minute overtime. In the 109th minute Kelsey Perrell scored the golden goal to give High Point the overtime victory – its first victory in 2013.
Roberson allowed both goals while saving five shots and faced a total of 19 shots in net for the Mountaineers.
The Mountaineers will have a week off before hosting Morehead State at Appalachian Soccer Stadium next Sunday with kick off set for 1 p.m.
