Oregon women’s soccer scores two late goals to shock Beavers, 2-1
In the season finale for both teams, the first 80 minutes were controlled by Oregon State, which took an 1-0 lead in the 29th minute. However, the Ducks scored two goals in the final 10 minutes of regulation to end their season with a win.
It seemed to be a matter of time when Oregon would shoot the ball in the back of the net, leading its Civil War foe in shots on goal 8-3 in the match.
But the clock kept ticking into the 80th minute with the Ducks scoreless.
Then, two minutes later, redshirt junior Maryn Beutler took a shot from 15 yards out, one that finally got past Oregon State senior goalkeeper Melanie Trumbull, who saved six shots in the match.
Both Kyra Fawcett and Taylor Kuroda were credited with an assist on Beutler’s second goal of the season.
Destined for Oregon’s fourth overtime match of the season, and second straight, Marissa Everett had other ideas.
Everett, a freshman from Canyon Lake, California, buried her fourth goal of the season thanks to an assist from midfielder Marlo Sweatman in the 86th minute. Everett led the Ducks with three shots on goal.
In the final four minutes, the Beavers moved players upfield to attacking positions. The counter attacked led to a corner and a final shot on Oregon goalkeeper Halla Hinriksdóttir, who sealed the win with the game-saving save in the 87th minute.
Hinriksdóttir finished with just two saves in the match but defended seven corner kicks.
With the win, the Ducks wrap up their season on a high note and a record of 6-13-0 and 3-8-0 in conference.
Oregon’s next match will be on Friday, November 13, as part of the Pac-12 tournament.
