KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Southwestern College women’s soccer team left Kansas City with their second draw of the season Sunday afternoon, tying Avila 2-2.
The Lady Eagles (5-3-1, 2-1-1 KCAC) struck just six minutes into the game on a goal by Cortlyn Ash. However, freshman Hailey Rouse sent a pass to sophomore Morgan Mitchell for the game-tying score for the Lady Builders (7-1-2, 2-0-2) six minutes later.
Just like the first half, the scores in the second half came within the first several minutes. And just like the first half, it was Avila scoring first, with Darian Malone putting it in less than five minutes in.
Shortly thereafter, former Winfield High School standout Sierra Salsman scored the equalizing goal on a free kick.
The game marked the first time all season that Southwestern goalkeeper Emily Sutton had allowed more than one goal in a match and just the second time the team has given up two scores. Sutton finished with 10 saves.
The Lady Builders return home at 5:30 p.m. today against Saint Mary.
