MU Women’s Soccer Handed Double Overtime Loss at Otterbein Saturday

Sophomore Shannon Evans’ late goal was not enough, as the women’s soccer team fell to Otterbein 2-1 in double overtime in an Ohio Athletic Conference matchup on Saturday.

The Purple Raiders fall to 11-5-1 overall and 4-3 in the OAC while Otterbein improves to 10-5-1 overall and 5-2.

Jillian Strimbu would put Otterbein on the board first in the 69th minute before Evans would tie the game in the 89th minute on a corner kick from freshman Carolyn Balzano, which would push the game into overtime.

It would be Madison Burchfield that would give Otterbein the win over the Raiders at the 106.47 mark in double overtime, 2-1.

Mount Union next plays Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 7 pm against Baldwin Wallace in an OAC matchup in Berea.
