Air Force Rallies To Defeat Boise State In Double-Overtime, 2-1
Aug. 27, 2010
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - The Air Force women's soccer team rallied to defeat Boise State, 2-1, in double-overtime Friday night at the Cadet Soccer Stadium. In a wild finish, junior Krystin Shanklin converted a penalty kick at the 105:25 mark to lift the Falcons to 2-1 on the season.
Boise State fell to 1-2.
Just seconds before the PK, Boise state was called for a foul when a Bronco defender pulled down a Falcon player in the box on a free kick. The Falcons were awarded the penalty kick, which Shanklin converted by drilling the ball to the lower left corner for the win.
Air Force trailed 1-0 after Boise State scored in the 63rd minute. Erica Parks converted on the score by following her deflected shot from five yards out.
The Falcons, who looked to be running out of chances late in the game, tied it up in the 83rd minute on freshman Megan Dozier's third goal of the season. Dozier took a pass from fellow freshman Leah Bratt and slid the ball past Boise State keeper Liz Ruiz to the lower left side of the net.
Freshman goalkeeper Kelly Stambaugh recorded seven saves in a strong performance in front of the net for AFA.
The Falcons return to action Sunday, Aug. 29, hosting Dayton. Kick off is 11 a.m.
