ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – The UCF women’s soccer team battled ECU in an American Athletic Conference matchup at the UCF Soccer Complex, but fell 2-1 in overtime on Thursday evening.

UCF (5-4-1, 2-1 The American) struck first, as Stefanie Sanders took advantage of a misplayed ball from the ECU defender. The sophomore forward registered her eighth goal of the 2018 campaign to give the Knights a 1-0 lead in the 25th minute.

ECU (7-4-2, 2-3 The American) found the equalizer in the 77th minute, as Morgan Dewey’s corner kick was sent in by Madie Knaggs to make it 1-1.

The Knights stepped up their offensive intensity over the remainder of regulation. Katriina Kuoksa, making her first appearance of the season as she returns from an injury, nearly put UCF back in front, but her shot hit the post.

Less than a minute into overtime, Jenna Dages tallied the golden goal to secure the victory for the Pirates.

Sanders accounted for three of UCF’s five shots on goal, with Orschmann and Carrie Lawrence registering one each.

The Knights continue home action on Sunday, welcoming Cincinnati for a 1 p.m. match at the UCF Soccer Complex.
