Women's Soccer falls on late MSOE penalty kick

MEQUON, Wis. – MSOE scored with just over four minutes left in regulation off a Missy Schultz penalty kick to edge the Concordia University Wisconsin Women's Soccer team Wednesday afternoon. The Falcons and Raiders were tied 1-1 the entire second half until the penalty kick gave the visiting Raiders a key NACC win.

THE BASICS
- Final Score: MSOE 2, Concordia Wisconsin 1
- Location: Fitting Field – Mequon, Wisconsin
- Records: MSOE 9-7-0, 7-1-0 NACC; CUW 6-6-3, 5-2-1 NACC

HOW IT HAPPENED
- The penalty kick by Schultz broke a 1-1 tie. Both teams scored their first goals early on Wednesday as the match was tied at one from the 23rd minute until the game-winner in the 86th minute.

- The Falcons got on the board first, scoring in the 14th minute on the fourth goal of the season by Allison McElwee (Laramie, Wyo.). McElwee took a pass from Kayla Schlosser (Germantown, Wis.) and buried a shot from inside the box for the 1-0 lead.

- Just over nine minutes later, the Raiders answered with a score by Nora Adkins, her seventh of the season.

- Each team had good opportunities to break the tie earlier, but missed shots and good goalkeeping kept the score at 1-1. The Falcons best chances came early in the second half, but they couldn't break through to retake the lead.

- Tabitha Ortiz (Plainfield, Ill.) finished the match with seven saves, including three in the second half to keep the score tied for much of the match. Abbie Lorenz stopped four shots for the Raiders.

BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
- The loss likely means CUW will not be able to capture a top-two seed in the NACC Tournament. The Falcons, who are still well positioned to make the tournament, are likely looking at a No. 4 seed if they can win their final two NACC contests against Concordia Chicago and Alverno. A top-four seed would still secure a home match in the opening round.

UP NEXT
- The Falcons will visit Concordia Chicago on Friday for a NACC tilt. The Falcons and Cougars are set for a 2 p.m. start.
