Archers Work Overtime for Seventh Straight Victory
September 28, 2012
|Katie Foytlin's first-half knotted the scored at 1-1
against Lindenwood-Belleville, and the Archers
later claimed a 2-1 victory in double overtime.
It certainly didn’t come as easily as the majority of wins during a seven-game winning streak, but the St. Louis Community College women’s soccer team pulled out its seventh straight win with a 2-1 victory over Lindenwood University-Belleville in double overtime.
Lindenwood grabbed the initial lead early in the first half, before the Archers answered with a goal by sophomore defender Katie Foytlin (Belleville East) in the 15th minute. From there, the Archers and Lynx remained deadlocked through regulation and the first overtime.
Then, with five minutes remaining in the second overtime, freshman forward Donna Jolliff (Seckman) delivered the game winner, her second goal of the season.
Jolliff’s goal ended a lengthy scoring drought for STLCC, as the Archers saw multiple scoring opportunities in the second half that went unfulfilled. Meanwhile, goalies Apolonia Thomas (Cape Central) and Meggin Werner (Mehlville) split duties in net, and held the Lynx at bay until Jolliff’s game winner.
“It’s good to see we can have a game where we don’t play well and still win,” head coach Juergen Huettner said. “It’s good to get one of those games out of our system. That’s the difference between an average team and a good team. You find a way to win.”
With the win, STLCC improved to 7-2-1. The Archers will conclude what has been a busy week, playing their third game this week on Saturday at Lincoln College.
