Senior Kristin Andrighetto scored the Tigers' lone goal of the game
Sept. 6, 2009
Columbia, Mo. - A torrential five minutes late in the second half proved to be the difference in today's game as the No. 21 Missouri women's soccer team was defeated by Long Beach State by a score of 4-1 at Walton Stadium. With the loss, Missouri's record now sits at 3-2-0, while Long Beach State improves to 2-2 in 2009.
Both teams came out fighting, exchanging possession back and forth through a cluttered midfield. The Tigers fell behind in the 29th minute when Shawna Gordon swung in a free kick from the right side of the field that found Lindsay Bullock, who finished to put the 49ers ahead 1-0. Bullock would later be yellow carded with 0:03 left in the first half for taunting.
Long Beach State's Karina Camacho tested senior goalkeeper Tasha Dittamore very early in the second half, as her shot was tipped and deflected off the crossbar in the 47th minute. Missouri would draw even 55th minute on the strength of a Kristin Andrighetto penalty kick goal. Andrighetto was brought down in the middle of the box to earn the penalty kick, and put her shot just high of the keeper's reach to make the score 1-1.
In the 74th minute, Long Beach State's Whitney Velez got the ball and charged into the Missouri box, drawing Dittamore off her line. Velez's shot would deflect off the crossbar to a waiting Jenny Soza, who tapped home the go-ahead goal for the 49ers. Nicole Hubbard entered the game in the 76th minute for Soza, and immediately made her presence felt. Camacho, from the top of the Missouri box, laid the ball off to Velez on the right side of the box. Velez then crossed the ball across the box to Hubbard, who struck to extend the 49er lead to 3-1.
Hubbard would earn her second goal of the day two minutes later, when she headed in the fourth 49er goal of the game off a cross from Camacho in the 79th minute. Andrighetto and fellow senior Michelle Makasini would see their late shots go wide of the goal, as Long Beach State hung on to preserve their lead.
The Tigers will return to action this weekend in Auburn, AL when they participate in the 2009 Auburn Tournament. Missouri will face Auburn on Friday, Sept. 11, at 7:00 p.m., followed by a match up against Vanderbilt on Sunday at 12:00 p.m.
