FIU beats ASU with a golden goal Sunday afternoon

Miami (ASU) – With only 49-seconds remaining in the overtime period, Florida International managed to break a 0-0 tie, taking the match from the Arkansas State women's soccer team, 1-0 in double-overtime Sunday.

The Red Wolves fell to 4-5-1 overall and 0-2 in Sun Belt play. The Golden Panthers improved to 5-4-1 and 2-0 in the conference.

"The girls did everything that we asked of them and fought really hard but its unfortunate that we lost," said head coach Tafadzwa Ziyenge. "We played against a team that finished first in the conference last year and we gave them the best side that we could give them. Hopefully we left the game with more lessons than regret."

ASU was outshot in the contest 12-6 but took three shots on goal to FIU's seven.

Katrina Rose took a cross from Kim Lopez in the 110th minute (109:11) and sent the shot past ASU goalkeeper Susan Brown to the right side to net the game winner.

Brown made seven saves in goal facing 12 total shots. ASU was led by freshman Meredith Molge who was the only ASU player to record multiple shots, notching two.

ASU returns to action facing Middle Tennessee on Friday at the ASU Soccer Complex. Kickoff against the Blue Raiders is set for 4 p.m.
