Jayhawks Tie, Fall in Final Spring Soccer Matches

April 24, 2010


Kortney Clifton scored the game-winning shootout goal Saturday to help Kansas get past Iowa in KU’s second match of the day at Robbie Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota. The Jayhawks fell to the Gophers, 2-0 in the early match of the day.

In the Iowa contest, Whitney Berry scored her fourth goal of the spring in the 37th minute giving KU a 1-0 lead. However, the Jayhawks surrendered an own goal just 11 minutes later.

Neither team could score in the final two minutes send the contest to a shootout. KU’s Berry, Nicole Chrisopulos, Lauren Jackson and Clifton all recorded goals in the shootout, while freshman goalkeeper Logan Reed made a pair of stops on Hawkeye shooters.

KU fell in the earlier match of the day as Minnesota’s Molly Rouse and Steph Brandt recorded back-to-back goals within a 30-second span to down the Jayhawks.

Redshirt freshman Kat Liebetrau made nine saves in net for the Jayhawks.
