Morton scores game-winner in 109th minute

FOREST GROVE, Oregon – Lura Morton scored the game-winning goal in the 109th minute to give the Puget Sound women's soccer team a 2-1 win at Pacific Friday night.

It was Puget Sound's (4-4-1, 3-1-1 NWC) fourth overtime game of the season, but the Loggers' first win in extra time.

Morton buried her team-leading third goal of the season off an assist over the top from Tayla MacPherson.   

After a scoreless first half, Gabbie Berg's second goal of the season gave the Loggers' a 1-0 lead over Pacific (1-8, 1-4 NWC) in the 56th minute. MacPherson also assisted on the score. Ten minutes later, the Boxers evened the score, but the Loggers prevailed with less than two minutes left in regulation.

Puget Sound fired 20 shots on the night, just one shy of matching its season high (vs Whitman, Sept. 15).

The Loggers remain in Oregon for a Sunday matchup at George Fox. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m.
