JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (September 28, 2003) - Furman's Kat Kelley scored at 3:56 of the overtime period to claim victory over the Buccaneers at Liberty Bell Field on Sunday afternoon. The East Tennessee State women's soccer team is now 6-2-0 overall, 1-1-0 in the Southern Conference, while the Furman Lady Paladins improve to 5-4-0, 3-0-0. Both teams fought hard in the first half. Furman held an edge with 11 shots compared to the Bucs three, but both teams remained scoreless entering the second half. The Paladins Emily Turgeon made a shot from outside 30 yards for the first goal of the game. Erin Sanders assisted on the goal at 62:13. The Buccaneers quickly answered with a goal of their own 25 seconds later. Junior Katherine Gentry (Murfeesboro, Tenn.) made a cross to freshman Alexandra Schwark (Strongsville, Ohio), who netted the goal at 62:38. The goal was Schwark's first goal as a Buccaneer. "We were scored on and that was a test," said head coach Heather Henson. "We came back in less than a minute to find the back of their net. That's a true test of what this team is made of. With the score 1-1, the game was sent into overtime. Andre'a Morrison gained control of the ball for the Paladins and made a cross to the six-yard box to Kelley who scored the game-winning goal. "Furman's a great team," commented Henson. "They take advantage of the mistakes that are made and converting those opportunities for a goal." ETSU goalkeeper Heather Sanden (Manassas, Va.) made 10 saves in the loss, while Andie Hinshaw made four saves in the win. "Taking a team, like Furman, that was the champion last year and ranked in preseason to take the championship this year into an overtime game has turned a lot of heads. The scouting report on us is going to be a little bit different now," stated Henson. "This loss hasn't changed anything. We are still driven, we are still going to push, and we will still work hard at practice for the upcoming weekend's games." The Buccaneers will continue their homestand by hosting two Southern Conference matches next weekend. ETSU will face the Citadel at 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Georgia Southern at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
