LEXINGTON, KY – The University of Iowa soccer team overcame a two-score deficit to defeat BYU, 3-2, in overtime at the University of Kentucky Invitational Saturday. The Hawkeyes fell behind the Cougars 2-0 before scoring three straight goals to capture the tournament title.
After falling behind 2-0 in the first half, the Hawkeyes rallied to cut the Cougars lead in half when Natalie Lencioni found the net 35 minutes into the first half. Lencioni scored the first goal of her career with the help from freshman Karen Enockson. The duo hooked up for Iowa’s first score at 35:11.
Iowa’s Danielle Oswald tallied the lone goal of the second half when she tied the score with an unassisted goal at the 56:47 mark. Iowa goalkeeper Britta Vogele held the Cougars scoreless after the second period to send the contest into overtime. Vogele finished the contest with 11 saves.
The Hawkeyes made Vogele’s efforts pay off by capitalizing early in the overtime period. Junior Katelyn Quinn kicked a Lindsey Phillips pass into the back of the net in the 93rd minute to give Iowa the victory over the 12th ranked Cougars.
Next weekend, the Hawkeyes will open up Big Ten play on the road with dates against Ohio State and Penn State.
