BCC Women Record Second Soccer Victory, 2-1, in Overtime
September 7, 2012 - After waiting through a 90-minute weather delay and a move to a new game site the No. 1-ranked Brevard Community College women's soccer team won in overtime, defeating host Butler Community College 2-1 in Augusta, KS on Friday evening.
Sophomore Courtney Hueston scored the game-winner for Brevard, heading in a long throw-in from freshman Heather Williams three minutes into the extra period.
Brevard improved to 2-0. Butler dropped to 3-2.
Friday's game was tied 1-1 at halftime. Sophomore Morgan Taylor Smith scored her first goal of the season for BCC while Butler scored on a penalty kick.
BCC outshot Butler 13-5. BCC goalkeeper Julia Kantor made four saves.
"It was a good win," BCC head coach Jeff Carr said. "The wind was a major factor. We played through a sloppy game. We persevered and Julia made one unbelievable save."
Butler was whistled for 20 fouls and Brevard for six.
BCC, the top-ranked team in the NJCAA Division I poll, plays defending NJCAA Division I national champion and No. 2-ranked Tyler (TX) Junior College Saturday afternoon in El Dorado, KS. Tyler is 1-0-1.
Tyler is ranked No. 1 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll while Brevard is ranked 14th.
BCC hits the road again next weekend, traveling to Albany, GA for a match against 2011 NJCAA national championship finalist and nationally ranked Darton College on Saturday, Sept. 15.
