USU soccer: concludes trip to Cornhusker state at Omaha on Sunday
Utah State soccer concludes its first road trip of the season taking on Omaha on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 11 a.m. (MT) in Omaha, Neb.
The Aggies are 2-0-1 after tying the Mavericks’ in-state rival Creighton, 1-1, in double overtime on Friday. UNO fell to 0-2-0 after a 3-0 loss to Missouri State in Springfield, Mo., on Friday. Omaha also has a season-opening loss to Iowa State last week.
In Friday’s match against the Bluejays, home team Creighton got on the board first, scoring in the 29th minute. Gabriela Guillen's direct kick found the leg of Brittney Neumann who got the ball past USU senior goalkeeper Ashlyn Mulford. This was the second-straight match that Utah State's opponent scored first after UTEP took a 1-0 lead on Aug. 19 before the Aggies rallied for the 2-1 win.
Less than three minutes later, junior midfielder Jennifer Flynn tied the score. In the 32nd minute, Flynn knocked in her second unassisted goal of the season to knot the score up at 1-1. After two overtime periods, the match ended in a tie.
Sunday’s match-up is the first meeting between the Aggies and the Mavericks.
After the short two-match road trip, Utah State returns home to face Northern Colorado on Friday, Aug. 31 at 4 p.m. Last year, the Aggies upended the Bears, 2-1, in Greeley, Colo.
