No. 19 BYU Knocks Off Kansas in Overtime
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Senior goalkeeper Colleen Quinn made a career-high 11 saves, however BYU’s Katie Larkin spoiled her night with a 98th minute penalty kick which lifted 19th-ranked Brigham Young past Kansas, 1-0 in overtime Thursday at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex.
The Cougars, who defeated Michigan State in overtime last week, improve to 2-0, while KU falls to 0-2-1 on the season.
Quinn, a senior goalkeeper from Colorado Springs, Colo., made stops from nearly every angle Thursday evening, including a few of the spectacular variety. The 5-foot-6 keeper made eight saves alone in the second half, including a diving stop on BYU’s Kelsea Kakadelas as time expired in regulation.
Quinn’s 11 saves surpassed her career high and were the most by a Jayhawk goalkeeper since Layla Young made 11 saves against Ole Miss on Sept. 16, 2000.
However, in the 98th minute, Larkin drew a foul in the box and made the Jayhawks pay with a penalty kick, which she buried low to the far side.
Kansas put four shots on BYU goalkeeper Erika Woodbury, who stopped them all. Junior Jessica Bush led the team with three shots, while Monica Dolinsky chipped in a pair.
Kansas was outshot in the match, 19-8, including 13-4 in the second half.
This marks the third time these schools have met on the soccer pitch. All three contests have ended with 1-0 scores, with BYU claiming two of them.
The Jayhawks will look to bounce back Sunday with another home contest against SMU at 1 p.m.
