Double Overtime Ends in Tie for ETSU

Friday, September 27, 2002

Spartanburg, S.C. (September 27, 2002) -- Wofford's Christine Pezzutti scored with less than three minutes remaining in regulation to force overtime in Friday night's 2-2 draw with East Tennessee State. This marked the second straight overtime game for the Buccaneers. With the tie, ETSU falls to 2-5-1 and 1-2-1 in conference play. The Terriers opened up the scoring in the 32nd minute, when Kyrah Bacote converted a penalty kick. East Tennessee State responded minutes later, tying it up at the 38:18 mark when Erin Ashton (New Bern, N.C.) made a long cross to the middle, and freshman Lauren Kulish (Bowie, Md.) sent the ball past Terrier keeper Katie Menegaz for the close-range goal. The score at the half would remain 1-1. After the break, ETSU's Erica Odom (Jesup, Ga.) scored on a 40 yard blast at the 74:12 mark. Pezzutti notched her goal at 87:44 to send the game into overtime. The two overtime periods were scoreless. "We worked hard and are continuing to grow, things are really starting to come together," said ETSU head coach Heather Henson. Wofford out shot East Tennessee State 28-9 in the match, with a 10-2 overtime margin. Buccaneer keeper Heather Sanden (Manassas, Va.) recorded 13 saves on the night. The Buccaneers will return to action Monday, when they travel to Furman.
