ORANGE BEACH, AL - (Tue 29 Nov 2016) - Lindsey Wilson women's soccer scored two second-half goals to overcome a 2-0 halftime deficit, but ultimately fell 4-3 in a penalty-kick shootout to Columbia (MO) today at the NAIA Women's Soccer National Championship at the Orange Beach Sportsplex.
The Blue Raiders close out the season with a 16-3-1 record.
Columbia goalkeeper Flavia Rosado saved a pair of Blue Raider shots and Kaitlyn Tambke drove home the decisive goal in the shootout to send the No. 15-seeded Cougars (20-1-3) to Wednesday's national quarterfinals.
The shootout loss is the first in Lindsey Wilson women's soccer history. The Blue Raiders had been 3-0 in shootouts, including 2-0 at the national tournament prior to today's setback.
Lindsey Wilson's Shelby Austin and Veronica Kurtz-Martinez each scored in the second frame for the second-seeded Blue Raiders to set up the dramatic shootout.
Austin scored her third goal of the season on a second-chance goal in the 61st minute.
Delfina Santellan began the play with a corner kick deep into the penalty area where Austin headed the ball straight up in the air five yards from goal line. Rosado attempted to grab the ball but mishandled it, providing Austin with a second chance. Austin made the most of the chance with a shot just inside the left post to cut the Columbia lead to 2-1.
In the 82nd minute, Kurtz-Martinez scored the equalizer off a Lyana Perez assist.
Perez dribbled the ball into the penalty area and sent a cross onto a charging Kurtz-Martinez. She fired a sliding shot just under the arms of Rosado for the 2-2 tie. The goal was Kurtz-Martinez's fourth of the season while Perez distributed her fifth assist of the season.
Lindsey Wilson goalkeeper Johanna Henriksson kept the match at 2-2 with a pair of saves in the waning minutes of regulation. She ended the game allowing both goals while collecting six saves.
Each team had a chance to end the match in one of the two overtime periods.
Columbia's Katelyn Palmer's shot was cleared off the line by a Blue Raider defender in the 100th minute, while Austin's shot in the 104th minute rattled the right post.
Kelsey Mirts put the Cougars up 1-0 in the sixth minute. Mirts made a run down the left flank and ran onto the ball -- that ricocheted off a Lindsey Wilson defender -- giving her a one on one with Henriksson. Mirts calmly shot the ball into the lower right corner of the goal for her 15th tally of the season.
Lindsey Wilson had an opportunity to tie the match in the 37th minute. Following a Columbia foul, Austin sent a free kick from 25 yards out towards the upper right corner. Rosado punched the shot just over the goal to preserve the 1-0 lead. Rosado ended the match with four saves.
Columbia doubled its lead in the 45th minute -- 18 seconds before the half.
Yuko Shinomiya sent a ball towards the Lindsey Wilson goal from 50 yards out. The wind-aided ball sailed over Henriksson's head to push the Cougars' lead to 2-0.
Columbia finished the match out-shooting Lindsey Wilson 17-11, including 9-6 in shots on target.
