] El Cajon, CA--
The San Diego Christian College women’s soccer team lost their first game of the season on Friday afternoon as The University of Hawaii at Hilo Vulcans came back from a 2-1 deficit to win in double overtime, 3-2.
The Vulcans struck first less than 10 minutes into the game, as Kristine Pasek received a pass down the right side of the field and was able to sneak the ball over goalkeeper Kaitlin Ogle to take a 1-0 lead.
The Lady Hawks responded with two goals from Hannah Waggoner within 10 minutes of each other to jump ahead 2-1 right before half.
The first score for SDCC came on a long pass from Senior Nicole Quintanilla that was originally gathered by a defender. Quickly, Waggoner was able to take the ball from the defender and continue the run. As goalkeeper Breegan Saller came out to try to attack the ball, Waggoner was able to tap it over Saller and into the goal.
The Hawks second goal from Waggoner came after Waggoner was fouled in the box while attempting a shot, leading to a penalty kick. Waggoner stayed perfect on the year in penalty kicks and placed the ball directly over a leaping Saller for her team-leading fifth goal of the season.
The Lady Hawks would maintain the lead until the 67th minute when the Vulcans were able to tie the game on a cross from Lindsey Poulsen to Kelly Fitzpatrick who placed a header in the net.
Regulation and the first overtime ended without a winner. Three minutes into the second overtime, UHH’s Kristine Pasek was able to beat a Hawks defender to the ball and get the ball past Ogle to give the Vulcans the victory.
Overall, SDCC was outshot by UHH 18-8. SDCC goalkeeper Kaitlin Ogle collected 6 saves in the loss.
“I feel bad for the girls as we played a good game,” said Coach Carlos Calderson. “It is a tough loss, but there is a lot we can learn from this moving forward.”
“I am happy we get some time off to heal some injuries before we get back on the field.”
The Lady Hawks resume their season on September 10th at home versus the University of Texas-Brownsville.
